HAI Certification Trainings
Health care-associated infections (HAIs) are infections people get while they are receiving health care for another condition. HAIs can happen in any health care facility, including hospitals, ambulatory surgical centers, end-stage renal disease facilities, and long-term care facilities. HAIs can be caused by bacteria, fungi, viruses, or other, less common pathogens.
HAIs are a significant cause of illness and death — and they can have devastating emotional, financial, and medical consequences. At any given time, about 1 in 25 inpatients have an infection related to hospital care. These infections lead to the loss of tens of thousands of lives and cost the U.S. health care system billions of dollars each year.
Arkansas Department of Health has partnered with health care professionals and experts in the field to bring a variety of topics to further the goal of HAI prevention. The webinars are an hour or less in length and provide one free CE credit for physicians and nurses.
