New tracking tools to help nursing facilities treat and prevent facility-acquired infections

Share this article:
Government health officials have released a tracking tool that can help nursing facilities monitor healthcare-acquired infections. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's National Healthcare Safety Network's new tracking component lets users log onto a website. There, they can report cases of infections such as clostridium difficile, urinary tract infections, methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus — and others. By reporting infections, nursing homes can better identify problems, implement prevention measures, and monitor progress toward stopping infections, according to the CDC. State and local health officials also can use the tracking tool to monitor regional prevention efforts, CDC officials said.
