Infection Prevention Program

Doctors and nurses trained in stopping infections work with other staff to improve care. This program keeps track of health care-related infections.  Data is used to find trends and reduce infections. We track the following infections:

  • Bloodstream
  • Pneumonia
  • Wound
  • Surgery site
  • Urinary catheter
  • Organisms that are hard to kill with antibiotics
