NEW YORK CITY HOSPITALS SEE BIG DROP IN INFECTION RATES

E-mail Print

The HHC (Health and Hospital Corporation) has announced encouraging results in infection rates after a  3 years  intensive and focused battle to reduce the most common and fatal infections: 90% reduction for ventilator-associated pneumonia and 65% for central blood stream infections among adult patients in intensive care units.
HHC attributes the dramatic reduction in infection rates to the adoption of proven, lifesaving interventions, including a series of independent steps, called bundles, that when done together typically result in significantly better outcomes.
Results are regularly published on HHC  website.
