NHSN State HAI Reports

progress chart with U.S. states map

  • States are in different places in the course of their HAI prevention efforts.
  • CDC’s National Healthcare Safety Network (NHSN) is a critical tool needed for states to do HAI prevention work. Once a state knows where problems lie, they can better assist healthcare facilities in correcting the issue and protecting patients.
  • The NHSN State Report provides a state’s standardized infection ratio (SIR), a summary measure used to adjust for the fact that each healthcare facility treats different types of patients.
  • Healthcare facilities and states are encouraged to validate, or double-check, their infection data.
