Ventilator Associated Pneumonia (VAP)


Our Rates

All hospitals with ICUs required to report into the Critical Care Information System (CCIS) - a centralized data collection system where hospitals report a variety of critical care information - must publicly report the VAP indicator data. These hospitals are considered "eligible" for VAP reporting.


These Ontario hospitals are posting their quarterly VAP rate and case count for those infections acquired in their facility, using the following formula:


total # of ICU cases of VAP after 48 hours of mechanical ventilation

----------------------------------------------------------------

total # of ventilator days for ICU patients 18 years and older x 1000
