Infection Prevention and Control Lapse at Burlington medical clinic

December 2017 - An investigation by the Halton Region Health Department has identified that clients who received medical services from Dr. Joseph Korkis at the Ontario Institute of Facial Surgery located at 672 Brant St., Unit 405, in Burlington, may have been exposed to improperly cleaned instruments used for procedures. Improperly cleaned instruments carry a low risk of transmitting infectious diseases. Learn more about the Infection Prevention and Control Lapse at Burlington medical clinic.

To reduce the risk of infection and disease outbreaks, the Halton Region Health Department staff work to promote high standards of infection control in long-term care homes, childcare centres, personal service settings (e.g. salons, nail parlours, tattoo and body piercing studios) and the community.
