Oregon has a number of national and state-level activities focused on understanding and reducing the occurrence of healthcare-associated infections (HAI).
These include mandated reporting
of high risk HAIs, validation
of reported data, and a patient safety commission
adapting evidence-based HAI prevention strategies aimed at reducing HAIs. Oregon also has multiple research projects
to determine overall HAI prevalence, to make HAI surveillance easier for hospitals, and to monitor specific HAI pathogens.
