HAI Prevention
patient and doctor

Prevention efforts reinforce patient safety across all health care. The purpose of coordinating and reporting HAI prevention efforts is to develop a HAI state prevention plan to coordinate and implement prevention activities and report on progress toward reductions.   

 
 

 


Our work

  • DROP-CRE Network
    The Drug Resistant Organism Prevention and Coordinated Regional Epidemiology (DROP-CRE) Network is a unique public-academic partnership whose primary objective is to detect and contain carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae (CRE) in Oregon.
  • Interfacility Transfer Communication
    As part of best practice during patient transfers, information about a patient’s medical status, including colonization or infection with a multidrug-resistant organism, should travel with a patient and be readily available to medical providers.
  • Oregon Patient Safety Commission Collaborative
    The Oregon Patient Safety Commission is a semi-independent state agency charged by the Oregon Legislature with the goals of reducing the risk of serious adverse events occurring in Oregon’s health care system and encouraging a culture of patient safety.
