Preventing Hospital InfectionsNearly 722,000 healthcare-associated infections (HAI) occur in U.S. hospitals each year, and some 75,000 patients die as a result. Such infections are highly preventable, particularly through the adoption and implementation of evidence-based methods for reducing patient infection at the point of care. In cases where hospitals fall short of their goals for improving infection prevention, their failures are often rooted in a low rate of staff adherence to the new prevention policies.

Preventing Hospital Infections is an easy-to-read, user-friendly publication.
