In 2009, The Joint Commission announced three new Healthcare Associated Infection (HAI) National Patient Safety Goals:
- reduce the incidence and transmission of Multi-drug Resistant Organisms (MDRO)
- reduce Central Line Associated Blood Stream Infections (CLA-BSI) and
- reduce Surgical Site Infections (SSI)
Education of staff on the essentials of these topic areas and prevention measures is an important component of reducing these HAIs at Yale-New Haven Hospital (YNHH).
Below, please find links to individual powerpoint presentations on the topics above.
Please review any that are relevant to your practice at YNHH.
