"Not On My Watch"---website to eliminate Healthcare Associated Infections

Since I am on the Infectitious Disease Committee at Saint Francis Memorial Hospital I would be remiss at not publishing this important message.



Hi again Richard


I sent you an email last week but hadn't heard back so I wanted to try you again. As you may be aware, the Department of Health & Human Services recently released its annual report on the quality of health care Americans receive. While there have been some improvements, hospitals still have work to do to put an end to the ongoing - but solvable - problem of Healthcare-Associated Infections (HAIs).

Caregivers and other healthcare professionals know steps need to be taken to protect patients from HAIs, but it will take strong leadership to make the changes necessary to reduce the likelihood of these life-threatening infections. To help achieve this goal, Kimberly-Clark Health Care launched "Not on My Watch" (www.haiwatch.com), a website that provides tools and information to help facilities eliminate HAIs.

I hope you will help in this effort by informing the readers of Drblakes Healingsole.Com about this initiative. I've created a useful site that you're welcome to grab resources from:

http://haiwatchnews.com/

Please let me know if you have any questions or need more information. If you are able to post about this, I'd love to get the link to your post.

Thank you,

Barbara
