Healthcare-Associated Infections

Healthcare-associated infections, or HAIs, are infections that people get while they are receiving treatment for another condition in a healthcare setting. HAIs can occur in all settings of care, including acute care hospitals, long-term acute care hospitals, rehabilitation facilities, surgical centers, cancer hospitals and skilled nursing facilities. Many of these infections can be prevented through the use of proper procedures and precautions. Below, different HAIs for each hospital are compared to the U.S. benchmark.
