Accountability Agreements

The Hospital Service Accountability Agreement (H-SAA and L-SAA) outlines the responsibilities of Deep River and District Hospital and the Champlain Local Health Integration Network (LHIN).

 

Executive Compensation

In 2010, the Province legislated a two‐year compensation freeze for all non‐unionized employees in the Broader Public Sector (i.e. colleges, universities, hospitals and school boards), which prohibited increases to compensation. In 2012, the Province lifted the compensation freeze for all non‐unionized employees but continued a freeze for designated executives and certain office‐holders. In 2014, the Province approved the Broader Public Sector Executive Compensation Act, 2014 (BPSECA) which provides for the establishment of compensation frameworks, as outlined in Ontario Regulation 304/16, and as amended by Ontario Regulation 187/17 (the Regulations), and the Broader Public Sector Executive Compensation Program Directive (the Directive). Under the Regulations and the Directive, the DRDH Board of Directors is responsible for:


  • Approving all wage increases for designated executives;
  • Developing an Executive Compensation Program (ECP) that identifies designated executive positions, includes a compensation philosophy, sets salary and performance related caps at no more than the 50th percentile of government approved comparators , establishes a designated executive salary and performance‐related pay envelope and considers other elements of compensation;
  • Submitting the proposed ECP to the Ministry for review and approval by no later than September 29, 2017;
  • Seeking public comment by posting its proposed ECP on its public‐facing website for a minimum of 30 days after receiving government approval to do so;
  • Submitting the summary of the public feedback received and any changes being considered to the ECP to the Ministry;
  • Approving the final ECP and posting it on the DRDH website.


Additionally, it is the responsibility of the Board to ensure that DRDH’s compensation for its designated executives enables us to remain competitive with other organizations in attracting and retaining qualified members of our senior management team who are responsible for facilitating the achievement of DRDH’s mission and vision.


Deep River and District Hospital has complied with the guidelines set out in the Regulations and Directive in the development of the DRDH Board approved ECP and has also received Ministry approval to post the final program.

Patient Safety

Patient Safety Plan

Deep River and District Hospital has developed a three-year Patient Safety Plan to ensure we can continue to deliver safe quality care to the people in our care. Our objective is to encourage and promote a culture of patient safety at all levels of the organization. Our plan outlines our priorities and the ways we will respond to patient safety concerns while making system-wide improvements.

Quality Improvement Plan

Deep River and District Hospital staff and physicians work hard every day to provide all of our patients with the same quality of care they would want for their own families. We continuously monitor a wide range of indicators to measure our success in that area, and to help us learn where more work may still be needed.

 

Our Quality Improvement Plan (QIP) provides a meaningful way for the organization to clearly demonstrate our accountability to our patients and community. Our QIP is focused on creating a positive patient experience and delivering high quality health care. With this plan, we are able to very clearly see our targeted areas for improvement and chart our progress.


How to Read our Quality Improvement Plan

Our Quality Improvement Plan (QIP) is made up of two parts:

  • A document that provides a brief overview of our quality improvement plan, highlighting and listing our hospital’s top priorities for the year.
  • A spreadsheet that includes our improvement targets and initiatives. The spreadsheet includes a core set of indicators that all similar hospitals across the province are working on.


Health Quality Ontario has requested that all hospitals report on a series of core indicators to support province-wide comparisons. The core indicators that apply to our hospital are reflected in our QIP. Not all indicators apply to our hospital. In this case, you will see “N/A”.
