Vital Signs Town Hall Teleconference Today: Preventing Healthcare-Associated Infections and Antibiotic Resistance
People receiving medical care can get serious infections called healthcare-associated infections (HAIs), which may lead to sepsis or death. Of the 18 antibiotic-resistant bacteria CDC identified as public health threats in 2013, nearly half cause HAIs. CDC is calling on doctors, nurses, healthcare facility administrators, and state and local health departments to continue to do their part to prevent HAIs. Join us today at 2:00 pm (EST) for the latest Vital Signs Town Hall Teleconference, “New CDC Data Tool: Antibiotic Resistance & Healthcare-Associated Infections,” to find out more.
