Patient Safety Indicators

Reporting of patient safety indicators may be of interest to people who receive care or will need care in hospitals and their loved ones; those who work or volunteer in hospitals; and the general public.

Reports on IWK Health safety indicators and rates can be found on our strategy website, The Road Forward, including:

  • Serious Safety Event Rate
  • Hand Hygiene Compliance
  • Lost Time Incident Rate (DART)
  • Quality Improvement Plan

For additional patient safety indicators of the IWK, visit the Nova Scotia Department of Health and Wellness' Public Reporting on Patient Safety page. Indicators can be filtered by region, hospital and care type.
