Infection Prevention and Control Advisory Services
Lower your risk for costly infections
Everyone in your organization has a role in infection prevention and control. Health care-associated infections (HAIs) are a major threat to patient safety, yet often preventable.
The CDC estimates that about 1 in 25 patients treated in hospitals get an infection that was caused by the treatment they received. Ambulatory surgery center and nursing home patients are at an increased risk for HAIs as well.
HAIs can cost you hundreds of thousands in reduced reimbursement and in public relations damage to your brand. Your ability to prevent or minimize infections is not only critical to patient safety, but to your organization’s overall health.
