Infection prevention and control lapse reports

Under the Ontario Public Health Standards, public health units are required to post initial and final reports of investigations where infection prevention and control lapses are identified.


About the reports

Our site contains reports on premises where an infection prevention and control lapse was identified through the assessment of a complaint or referral, or through communicable disease surveillance. It does not include reports of premises which were investigated following a complaint or referral where no infection prevention and control lapse was ultimately identified.

The reports are not exhaustive and do not guarantee that those premises listed and not listed are free of infection prevention and control lapses. Identification of lapses is based on assessment and investigation of a premises at a point-in-time. These assessments and investigations are started when potential infection prevention and control lapses are brought to the attention of the Medical Officer of Health.

Reports are posted on the website of the public health unit in which the premises is located. Reports are posted on a premises-by-premises basis, meaning that individual reports correspond with one site only. If you would like to view a full investigation report for any posted lapse, please contact our Health Protection Division at 705.522.9200, ext. 464 (toll-free 1.866.522.9200).
