Hospital-wide Surveillance Reduces HAI Incidence

Hospitalwide Surveillance Reduces HAI Incidence

The implementation of extensive, hospitalwide surveillance and control measures for preventing health care-associated infections reduced infection rates, mortality and costs, according to recent data. In the retrospective, observational study, researchers evaluated health care-associated infection (HAI) data from the University of North Carolina Hospitals, an 806-bed, tertiary care academic facility. Data were collected between 2001 and 2012.
