National Action Plan to Eliminate Healthcare-Associated Infections

HHS posted online an updated National Action Plan to eliminate healthcare-associated infections for public comment.  According to HHS, “The update confirms progress in the effort to make healthcare safer and less costly by reducing preventable complications of care, including healthcare-associated infections (HAIs).”  A new state-by-state breakdown by the CDC reports that HAIs in hospitals have been declining since HHS first introduced its National Action Plan to Prevent Healthcare-Associated Infections: Roadmap to Elimination in 2009.  The CDC report “…also pinpoints specific medical procedures that require stronger infection prevention efforts to maximize patient safety.”
