SHEA, IDSA, and Partners Publish Strategies to Prevent Health Care-associated Infections

For the first time, the Society for Healthcare Epidemiology of America (SHEA), IDSA, and three other leading health care organizations have come together to publish practical, evidence-based strategies to help hospitals prevent six of the most important health care-associated infections (HAIs). Hospitals should take note; otherwise their accreditation could be at risk.
