Alabama hospitals outperform nation in infection prevention

Posted: Updated:

   Alabama hospitals outperformed the nation in the prevention of healthcare-associated infections according to a report posted by the Alabama Department of Public Health.  The report includes statistics from hospitals around the country for the year 2012.

   The report documents that Alabama's hospitals performed better than the national average in four measured categories:  catheter-associated urinary tract infections, central line-associated bloodstream infections and two types of surgical site infections.
