November 16, 2023
2:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m. (ET)
Healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) are one of the major causes for adult hospital readmissions. The most common types of HAIs include C difficile, CLABSI, CAUTI, SSI and VAP. If not prevented or managed appropriately, both community and healthcare-associated infections can lead to sepsis, which is one of the leading causes of hospital readmissions. This webinar will be led by nationally recognized infection prevention expert, Linda Greene, RN, MPS, CIC, FAPIC. She will be sharing information and infection prevention practices and strategies that will reduce preventable HAIs which may be contributing to increasing readmissions in hospitals.
Please join FHA for this important educational program to learn more about your role in preventing the risk of healthcare associated infections. This virtual event is part of the FHA Infection Prevention webinar series that provides hospital infection preventionists and team members with the latest information, evidence-based practice, and resources for eliminating hospital-acquired infections (HAI).
