The CDC estimates that, in America, there are approximately 1.7 million healthcare-associated infections and 100,000 deaths. It is estimated that hospital-acquired infections (HAIs) result in nearly $20 billion in excess healthcare costs each year. This is why HAIs are a top priority for the US Department of Health and Human Services.
During this program, our expert will outline recent CMS infection control memos, such as those on safe injection practices, Ebola, and insulin pen memos. Hospitals should construct safe injection practices based on the CDC's 10 safe injection practices and train every employee on the procedure. Later in this session, we'll explore CMS' other memos related to infection control breeches, humidity, CRE, and ERCPs.
