Infection Prevention and Control (IPAC) Lapse Investigations

An IPAC lapse occurs when there is deviation from IPAC best practices resulting in possible disease transmission to patients, clients or staff through exposure to blood, body fluids, secretions, excretions, mucous membranes, non-intact skin or soiled items.

The Middlesex-London Health Unit is responsible for investigating potential lapses and these investigations may be initiated by complaints, referrals, or infectious disease investigations.

To file a IPAC lapse complaint about a regulated health care professional or health care setting, please call 519-663-5317 or email
