Location: Oregon Convention Center, Oregon Ballroom 202-203

This session presents an overview of the 2015 National Healthcare Safety Network (NHSN) baseline for measuring progress in the prevention of healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) and the measurement of device use through the standardized device utilization ratio. Participants should have a basic understanding of rates and standardized infection ratios (SIRs).
