International Infection Prevention Week: Special Report 


Healthcare facilities have made huge strides in improving infection prevention and control, yet the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention notes that, on any given day, one in 31 hospital patients may acquire a healthcare-associated infection (HAI). No matter how effectively an organization plans to mitigate common causes of HAIs, there remains the risk of exposure to unexpected or difficult-to-root-out pathogens.


Eliminating these less well-known risks can be tricky.  It requires careful planning and  clear  communication  among  infection  prevention  professionals,  facilities  staff,  clinical  caregivers,  and  environmental  services (EVS) teams.
