Tracking Infections in Long-term Care Facilities

Eliminating infections, many of which are preventable, is a significant way to improve care and decrease costs. CDC’s National Healthcare Safety Network provides long-term care facilities with a customized system to track infections in a streamlined and systematic way. When facilities track infections, they can identify problems and track progress toward stopping infections. On the national level, data entered into NHSN will gauge progress toward national healthcare-associated infection goals.

NHSN’s long-term care component is ideal for use by: nursing homes, skilled nursing facilities, chronic care facilities, and assisted living and residential care facilities
