CDC issues state healthcare-associated infection report
Despite uneven progress, U.S. moving in positive direction toward eliminating serious infections
CDC released a report today detailing national and state performance in preventing three major categories of healthcare-associated infections: central line-associated bloodstream infections (CLABSIs), catheter-associated urinary tract infections (CAUTIs) and surgical site infections (SSIs) for 10 procedures.
The report, which includes data from CDC's National Healthcare Safety Network (NHSN | CDC - NHSN ), shows that CLABSIs and CAUTIs continue to decline nationally; however, 9 out of 10 surgical procedures tracked require stronger infection prevention efforts to maximize patient safety.
This is the first time that CDC is releasing CLABSI [ CDC - Q and A Summary Data Report - HAI ] standardized infection ratios (SIR) for every state. As seen in the report, 21 states ( CDC - Table 4 - SIR Report ) had significant decreases in central line-associated bloodstream infections between 2009 and 2010, which has contributed to the progress seen nationally.
