National Infection Measurements

  • Central Line Associated Bloodstream Infection (ICU + select Wards)
    According to the CDC, a central line is like an IV, but instead of being put in a peripheral location like the hand or arm, these are long term access points for the administration of medicine and fluids and/or the collection of blood. Because these access points can be in place for weeks or months, they can be prone to infection. Strict medical procedures are in place for keeping the area clean and maintained.
  • Catheter Associated Urinary Tract Infections (ICU + select Wards)
    According to the CDC, this is any infection of the urinary system when a catheter is in place. It is the most common type of healthcare-related infection as reported by the National Healthcare Safety Network.
  • SSI - Colon Surgery
    An SSI is a surgical site infection. This measurement is specifically measuring surgical site infections associated with colon surgery.
  • SSI - Abdominal Hysterectomy
    An SSI is a surgical site infection. This measurement is specifically measuring surgical infections related with a hysterectomy.
  • MRSA Bacteremia
    MRSA stands for Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus. This measurement tracks the type of bacterial infection that is resistant to antibiotics.
  • Clostridium Difficile (C.Diff)
    C. Diff is a bacterium that causes severe diarrhea. According to the CDC, 1 in 11 people who get over the age of 65 will die within a month. This measurement tracks the cases related to C.Diff infections.
