Surgical Site Infections (SSI)

Hospitals that perform hip and/or knee joint replacement surgeries on patients over the age of 18 are required by the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care (MOHLTC) to publicly report their surgical site infection prevention percentages. SickKids does not do these surgeries on patients over 18 years of age and is, therefore, considered “ineligible” to publicly report this information.

However, SickKids remains committed to ensuring the utmost quality of care and patient safety. At our hospital, the department of Quality and Risk Management looks at quality and safety issues at the hospital level
