Accreditation Information

Antimicrobial Stewardship consists of optimizing antibiotic use in order to improve patient outcomes, decrease antibiotic related adverse events and C. difficile, and minimize antibiotic resistance. Accreditation Canada declared Antibiotic Stewardship a Required Organizational Practice in 2013 for all acute care sites which led to the creation of the Covenant Health Antimicrobial Stewardship Program. Covenant Health underwent accreditation in October 2014 and were successful. The next accreditation review is planned for 2018.
