    • Description:
      The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is committed to protecting patients and healthcare personnel from adverse healthcare events and promoting safety, quality, and value in healthcare delivery. Preventing healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) is a top priority for CDC and its partners in public health and healthcare. The 2020 annual National and State Healthcare-Associated Infections (HAI) Progress Report provides a summary of select HAIs across four healthcare settings: acute care hospitals (ACHs), critical access hospitals (CAHs), inpatient rehabilitation facilities (IRFs) and long-term acute care hospitals (LTACHs). Data from CAHs are provided in the detailed technical tables but not in the report itself. The designation of CAH is assigned by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) to hospitals that have 25 or fewer acute care inpatient beds and that maintain an annual average length of stay of 96 hours or less for acute care patients. IRFs include hospitals, or part of a hospital, that provide intensive rehabilitation services using an interdisciplinary team approach. LTACHs provide treatment for patients who are generally very sick and stay, on average, more than 25 days. To view HAI data from individual hospitals, LTACHs and IRFs, please see: CMS Care Compare (https://www.medicare.gov/care-compare/)

      This report, along with the detailed technical tables, provides national- and state-level data about HAI incidence during 2020. The report is designed to be accessible to many audiences. National and state HAI reports will be made available for viewing, downloading, and printing from the Antibiotic Resistance & Patient Safety Portal (https://arpsp.cdc.gov/). For detailed methods, references, and definitions please refer to the Technical Appendix and Glossary within this report. For more information, please visit CDC’s Healthcare-Associated Infection Data Portal (https://www.cdc.gov/hai/data/portal/index.html).
