Objective HAI-1

SOURCE: National Healthcare Safety Network (NHSN), CDC/NCEZID.
NOTES: Data are for units that reported central line-associated bloodstream infections, as measured by a standardized infection ratio (SIR). The number of reporting units varied by year depending on state mandates or federal policy. A three-year baseline was chosen as there were few facilities reporting in 2006.
I = 95% confidence interval.

The rate of central line-associated bloodstream infections, as measured by the standardized infection ratio (SIR), declined 32.0% from 2006–08 to 2010, from a 1.00 SIR to a 0.68 SIR.

HAI-2 graph

Objective HAI-2

SOURCE: Active Bacterial Core Surveillance (ABCS), CDC/NCIRD.
NOTE: Data are for invasive healthcare-associated methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) infections that were reported per 100,000 persons and are adjusted for age, race, sex, and receipt of chronic dialysis.
I = 95% confidence interval.

The rate of invasive healthcare-associated methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) infections declined 19.6% from 2007–08 to 2010, from 27.08 to 21.76 per 100,000 (adjusted for age, race, sex, and receipt of chronic dialysis).
