What Do I Need To Know About Healthcare-Associated Infections?

When you go to a hospital or a doctor’s office, you expect to get better, and you certainly don’t expect to contract a NEW infection while you’re there. Unfortunately, there has been a rapid growth in cases of hospital-related infections (“HAIs”)like MRSA and ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP).

We have seen examples of this problem with several of our clients who have been admitted for care at local hospitals and who have contracted MRSA while being treated in those hospitals.

For tips on how to help avoid HAIs when you or your loved ones have to go to the hospital, see this web page: How to Prevent Health Care Associated Infections.
