Colorado Issues Bulletin on Dialysis Event Reporting

December 6, 2011

The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) has released its December 2011 Semi-Annual Bulletin (Volume 4, No. 2) about dialysis event reporting in Colorado.

The report bulletin, written to fulfill the requirements of the Colorado Hospital-Acquired Infections Disclosure Act, contains information about the risk of infection for hemodialysis patients as well as aggregate Colorado specific dialysis event data.

This is the CDPHE’s second bulletin released this year.  The agency plans on publishing an annual report by January 15, 2012.  That report will contain information on surgical site infections, central line-associated bloodstream infections, and dialysis events.
