In November 2012, the Ministry of Health issued a new policy to require health authorities to strengthen their “safe reporting” policies by June 1, 2013. The revised safe reporting policies will represent an enhanced commitment to ensuring that the quality and level of care that a patient receives is not impacted when a concern or complaint is raised.
