The Iowa Department of Public Health (IDPH) and the Center for Acute Disease Epidemiology (CADE), wishes to say thank to all of our Iowa hospitals for their participation in "Healthcare-Associated Infections (HAI) - Building and Sustaining Programs to Prevent Healthcare-Associated Infections in Iowa" grant activities.
The "HAI Prevention Participant Guide" outlines the strategies to support your hospital. The guide may be used as a checklist for the first year of activities and includes references, information on how to access support staff, and other recommended activities such as meetings and conference calls that will guide you through the grant activities. IDPH will also support your enrollment in and reporting to the National Healthcare Safety Network (NHSN).
