Details:
  • Description:
    Healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) are infections patients can get while receiving medical treatment in a healthcare facility. Working toward the elimination of HAIs is a CDC priority. The standardized infection ratio (SIR) is a summary statistic that can be used to track HAI prevention progress over time; lower SIRs are better. The infection data are reported to CDC’s National Healthcare Safety Network (NHSN).

    HAI data for nearly all U.S. hospitals are published on the Hospital Compare website.

    THIS REPORT IS BASED ON 2014 DATA, PUBLISHED IN 2016
