Healthcare-Associated Infections

Healthcare-associated infections or HAIs are infections that people get while they're getting treatment for another condition in a healthcare setting.  HAIs can occur in all settings of care, including acute care hospitals, long term acute care hospitals, rehabilitation facilities, surgical centers, cancer hospitals and skilled nursing facilities.  Many of these infections can be prevented through the use of proper procedures and precautions.
