We believe healthcare excellence means going beyond the acceptable standards for reducing healthcare-associated infections (HAIs). Healthcare-associated infections are infections caused by a wide variety of common and unusual bacteria, fungi and viruses during the course of receiving medical care. Medical advances have brought lifesaving care to patients in need, yet many of those advances come with a risk of these infections.
Wherever patient care is provided, adherence to infection prevention guidelines is needed to ensure that all care is safe care. This includes traditional hospital settings, as well as outpatient surgery centers, long-term care facilities, rehabilitation centers, physician’s offices and community clinics.
