Join us on Monday, October 15, at 10 AM ET, for a Webinar honoring one exemplary hospital that has achieved sustainable improvements based on the concepts of the “National Action Plan to Prevent Healthcare-Associated Infections: Roadmap to Elimination” and is helping to achieve the goals outlined through the HHS Partnership for Patients. The award is co-sponsored by HHS, the Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology (APIC), and the Society for Healthcare Epidemiology of America (SHEA).
Every day, approximately 1 in every 20 patients has an infection related to his or her hospital care. Healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) are infections that people acquire in a healthcare setting while they are receiving treatment for other conditions. HAIs can be acquired anywhere that healthcare is delivered. Healthy People 2020 has two objectives focused on HAI reduction.
