The Alliant Health Solutions (AHS) Healthcare-associated infections (HAI) Surveillance & Dashboard tool is a modifiable spreadsheet designed to support nursing facility infection prevention and control (IPC) surveillance. This spreadsheet features line lists, data tables, and graphs for respiratory tract infections, urinary tract infections, gastrointestinal tract infections, skin and soft tissue infections, and multi-drug resistant organism (MDRO) surveillance. The spreadsheet allows infection preventionists to track and display facility-wide HAIs, which will be useful for reports, quality improvement committees, regulatory visits, etc. The tool can also be adapted for facility-specific IPC needs and surveillance priorities.
This session will review pertinent definitions and categorizations of pneumonia. We will also discuss updates to the guidelines and review an example case.
