Safe Reporting

Northern Health’s Safe Reporting policy establishes a process for individuals to bring forward information about possible wrongdoing by Northern Health staff, in good faith and without fear of reprisal. It also provides for consistent and administratively fair investigations process into reports of possible wrongdoing.

Safe Reporting does not take the place of Northern Health’s existing reporting and complaints structures such as the Patient Care Quality Office, professional practice processes or workplace safety reporting. It is for those occasional situations where an individual who wishes to report a perceived wrongdoing and is convinced that the normal internal process for such disclosure is inadequate or has failed to respond adequately to their concerns.

What can be reported?

Examples of wrongdoing can include mistreatment of patients, actions posing a threat or danger to patients and staff or the general public, theft, bribery, fraud, unethical conduct or misconduct, unauthorized use or misuse of public funds or resources, illegal activity, or noncompliance with any federal or provincial laws or regulations.

How do I report wrongdoing?

To report a case of wrongdoing to Northern Health at any time please use one of the contact methods below. Any reporting will be treated in a confidential manner.
