Healthcare Associated Infections
The healthcare-associated infections (HAI) measures provide information on infections that happen while the patient is in the hospital. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) collects this information and encourages hospitals to use CDC-recommended infection control steps to prevent healthcare-associated infections.
