December 14 at 11:00am-2:30pm CST/10:00am-1:30pm MST 

Healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) are the most common complication associated with hospital care and continue to be a significant concern for critical care professionals. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that one in every 31 hospital patients acquires at least one HAI each day, costing billions for healthcare organizations. The potential for HAIs to lead to sepsis further emphasizes the need for HAI prevention measures, which also serve as sepsis prevention strategies.

Topics covered will include:

  • Healthcare-associated infection prevention priorities (CAUTIs, CLABSIs, VAEs, CDIFF, SSIs);
  • The Impact of MDROs including Candida Auris on HAIs;  Skin and Skin Structure Infections (SSIs, Cellulitis, and HAPIs);
  • HAI risks and considerations in immunocompromised patients.
