We recently concluded our May Friday Focus 4 Health Series: Up Your Protection From Infections. In case you were unable to attend and would like to access the recordings and training sessions, please visit the Friday Focus 4 Health Web page.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), it is estimated that in American hospitals exclusively, healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) contribute to approximately 1.7 million infections annually, resulting in approximately 99,000 associated fatalities. There is an urgent need for robust public health measures to effectively mitigate the spread and mitigate the adverse consequences of these infections, and it starts with healthcare organizations.
