MHC’s Participation in CPSI

Misericordia is an active participant in the Canadian Patient Safety Institute’s (CPSI) Safer Healthcare Now! and Shift to Safety! campaigns in collaboration with the Winnipeg Regional Health Authority. This has assisted us in the implementation of best practices to support patient safety improvements such as:

  • Venous Thromboembolism (VTE) prophylaxis to prevent complications such as deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolus
  • Infection Prevention and Control measures to protect those who might be vulnerable from acquiring an infection – both in the general community and while receiving care
  • Falls Prevention: Read about our award-winning Focus on Falls Prevention Project, including the Vision Screening Kit
  • Medication management: We have been actively working with other programs and services in the region in the development and implementation of improved medication practices to insure our patients receive the right medication at the right time
