What's New

    1. Reportable Healthcare Associated Infections (HAI) data for 2015 from acute care hospitals, long term acute care hospitals, and inpatient rehabilitation facilities are now available on the DPH HAI website.
    2. Antimicrobial resistance reporting of carbapenem resistance has been expanded from Enterobacteriace (CRE) to include Acinetobacter baumanni (CRAB). Clinical laboratories reporting CRE and CRAB are also requested to submit the isolates to the State Public Health Laboratory.
    3. The DPH HAI Program is offering Infection Control and Assessment Response visits to long term care facilities, and through the IPRO End Stage Renal Disease Network of New England, to outpatient hemodialysis centers. This CDC-funded activity is an on-site consultation service enabling facilities access to tailored assessments and technical assistance to improve infection control.
