There is a long way to go in combating infection control in hospitals. On this blog page I have highlighted some hospitals who have had nearly zero infection rates over a prolonged period yet you still have studies such as this which show 1/3 of hospitals included in a large survey have poor ratings. 

The best performers have infection control at the very heart of their believes. Rigorous root cause investigations and careful process redesign to eliminate causes as part of a continuing improvement program. Sounds a familiar approach to how other industries improve quality and reliability. It works in healthcare too.

Spreading best practice is key to success in fighting HAI
