A new report released by Health Quality Ontario documents how 29 Ontario hospitals participating in an international quality improvement program for surgery are making inroads into improving patient safety in key areas such as post-operative infections. The international program involves nearly 700 hospitals around the world and collects and compares surgical data in 14 key areas. The program also provides hospitals with best practices and programs to reduce the risks of complications specific to their data, and to make every stage of surgery as safe as possible.
