Infection Control & Prevention Resources
"Every day, healthcare-associated infection (HAI) results in prolonged hospital stays, long-term disability, increased resistance of microorganisms to antimicrobials, massive additional costs for health systems, high costs for patients and their family, and unnecessary deaths."
- World Health Organization
What are health care-associated infections?
Health care-associated infections, or “nosocomial” and “hospital” infections, affect patients in a hospital or other health-care facility, and are not present or incubating at the time of admission. They also include infections acquired by patients in the hospital or facility but appearing after discharge, and occupational infections among staff.
View the CDC's Guideline for Disinfection and Sterilization
Disinfection and sterilization are essential for ensuring that medical and surgical instruments do not
transmit infectious pathogens to patients. Because sterilization of all patient-care items is not necessary, health-care policies must identify, primarily on the basis of the items' intended use, whether cleaning, disinfection, or sterilization is indicated.
