Now more than ever, health care organizations must prioritize preventive protocols and mitigation plans for health care-associated infections (HAIs) to reduce the risk of acquiring and transmitting infections and to further promote patient safety. It has been shown that effectively managing HAIs decreases patient morbidity and mortality, length of stay and institutional cost.
Whether our clients are aiming to meet or exceed regulatory and compliance requirements or to improve their infection control processes and standards, our team of infection control experts is here to help. We support our clients’ infection control efforts through the provision of evidence-based prevention and management techniques for HAIs as well as emerging infections.
