Hawaii healthcare-associated infections report

In a new report issued on June 30, 2013, the Hawaii State Department of Health (HDOH) presents information about healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) among patients treated in Hawaii’s acute care facilities.

This is the first report containing HAI data issued by the state since the Hawaii legislature passed legislation in 2011 requiring HAI public reporting.

The report contains data reported during calendar year 2012 for central Line-associated bloodstream infections (CLABSI) and catheter-associated urinary tract infections (CAUTI) in intensive care units (ICU).   It also presents all inpatient surgical site infections (SSI) for abdominal hysterectomies and colon surgeries.
