HAI Progress Report Data

CDC’s National Healthcare Safety Network (NHSN) provided data for this report. NHSN provides a secure way for healthcare facilities to track and report healthcare-associated infection (HAI) data. CDC, states, healthcare facilities, and other patient safety organizations use this data to identify problem areas, measure progress of prevention efforts, and ultimately eliminate HAIs. HAI data for nearly all U.S. hospitals are published on the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services’ (CMS) Care Compare tool.
