Reducing Hospital Acquired Infections: A Roadmap
To view webcasts you should have flash player 10 or higher. You can find out your version and download an update here.
Beginning in 2001 the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services stepped up their scrutiny of hospital acquired infections, or HAIs, reducing or withholding outright payments to hospitals where patients contracted infections during or as a result of their stay. In August 2015, it was reported that 2,592 hospitals would be hit with penalties, resulting in a combined loss of $420 million.
Numbers like this are forcing health care providers to take notice and improve cleaning and disinfecting processes that result in reduced HAIs. Attendees of this webcast will benefit from an in-depth discussion of effective infection control, and learn how a roadmap to better HAI prevention and response can be implemented in a variety of health care settings.
