Health-Care-Associated Infections in Hospitals: Continuing Leadership Needed from HHS to Prioritize Prevention Practices and Improve Data on These Infections
Marjorie Kanof (au)
Health-care-associated infections (HAI ) -- infections that patients acquire while receiving treatment for other conditions -- are estimated to be 1 of the top 10 causes of death in the nation. This statement summarizes a March 2008 report on this subject which examined: (1) CDC's guidelines for hospitals to reduce or prevent HAIs and what HHS does to promote their implementation; (2) Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services' (CMS) and hospital accrediting organizationsí required standards for hospitals to reduce or prevent HAIs; and (3) HHS programs that collect data related to HAIs and integration of the data across HHS.
