Hospital Infection Control Still Not Good Enough

Hospital Infection Control Still Not Good Enough

According to the CDC’s annual National and State Healthcare-Associated Infections Progress Report, there has been a 46 percent decrease in central line-associated bloodstream infections (CLABSI) between 2008 and 2013. However, the CDC asserts additional efforts are necessary in order to improve overall patient safety. They call for every hospital to have rigorous infection control programs to protect patients and healthcare workers, and for health care facilities and others to work together to reduce the many types of infections that haven’t decreased enough.
