Healthcare-associated Outbreaks

Upon consultation CDC can provide assistance to health departments during investigation, and share best practices based on many states’ previous experiences with issues such as: infection control breaches previously associated with transmissions in specific settings and observation recommendations, guidance for notification messages including specific populations to screen, and guidance on laboratory testing and molecular genetic investigation.

This manuscript suggests an approach to follow-up of infection control breaches that focuses on the risk of bloodborne pathogen transmission.
