Product Description

Hospitals participating in JCR’s Partnership for Patients Hospital Engagement Network (HEN) have experienced an overall 86% reduction in ventilatorassociated pneumonia (VAP). A ventilator-associated pneumonia is specifically defined as a pneumonia event that occurs at the time a ventilator is in place, or within 48 hours after a ventilator has been in place. The National Healthcare Safety Network (NHSN) implemented new definitions for ventilator-associated events that were effective January 2013, but the majority of the JCR HEN hospitals continue to submit data for VAP.
