HAI Checklists

The NHSN Healthcare Associated Infections (HAI) checklists were developed by the National Healthcare Network (NHSN) subject matter experts (SMEs) as a tool to aid Infection Preventionists and other users when making a determination about a healthcare-associated infection.

The HAI checklists should not be used in isolation, but in conjunction with the Patient Safety Manual. Please note all NHSN HAI criteria for each respective module is listed in a single document. Use the scroll bar to locate the criterion of interest. It is our hope that the checklists will assist with your surveillance efforts.
