IWK Reporting of Patient Safety Indicators

The Nova Scotia Government has passed a law called the Patient Safety Act. The Act requires hospitals to collect information called patient safety indicators and report the results to the Department of Health and Wellness and the public.

Who is this information for?
  • People who receive care or will need care in hospitals, and their loved ones.
  • Those who work or volunteer in hospitals.
  • The general public.
