Infection Control – Prevention is Key!

This year, again, our staff and volunteers at the Mattawa Hospital and the Algonquin Nursing Home have greatly participated in our seasonal flu shot campaign.  We have achieved a successful immunization rate of 85% participation for the Mattawa Hospital and 86% for the Algonquin Nursing Home!

In addition to the flu shot campaign, we continue to promote hand hygiene practices for all individuals visiting the Hospital or Home.  “Just clean your hands.” It doesn't get much simpler than that.  Evidence shows that hand hygiene can decrease infections in health care settings and is the single most important method of preventing infections. It only takes a moment!

Thanks to the generosity of so many in our region, the Mattawa Health Hub will soon be at the centre of our local health care services! Because of the generosity of our community we have been able to design a Health Hub that will be the envy of communities large and small throughout Ontario. Amy Morrison, VP Corporate Services and CFO of the Mattawa Hospital and Algonquin Nursing Home, has been involved with the planning and construction of the Hub since the beginning several years ago. “This is the healthcare of the future: it is patient-centred, integrated and efficient with so many complementary health services all brought together on one single site,” says Morrison. “We will be one of the first in the province to create this model and that it because of the vision and hard work of so many people, local and provincial government leaders and our generous community. We can only complete this project with the support of the residents of Mattawa and the region we serve.”
