Health-Care-Associated Infections in Hospitals: An Overview of Status Reporting Programs and Individual Hospital Initiatives to Reduce Certain Infections
Cynthia A. Bascetta (au)
Health-care-associated infections (HAI) are infections that patients acquire while receiving treatment for other conditions. Normally treated with anti-microbial drugs, HAIs are a growing concern as exposure to multidrug-resistant organisms (MDRO) becomes more common. Infections caused by MDROs, such as methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, lead to longer hospital stays, higher treatment costs, and higher mortality. This report examines: (1) the design and implementation of state HAI public reporting systems; (2) the initiatives hospitals have undertaken to reduce MRSA infections; and (3) the experience of certain early-adopting hospitals in overcoming challenges to implement such initiatives.
