IPAC Lapse Reports

The Chatham-Kent Public Health Unit inspects various settings to ensure appropriate infection control practices are being followed. These settings include but are not limited to personal service settings, child care facilities and medical facilities. When a complaint is received, public health staff conduct facility inspections and assess practices and procedures. If an infection control lapse is identified, public health staff work with the facility to mitigate any hazards to the public and prevent further problems from arising.
