Healthcare-associated infections (HAI) occur as an unintended result during patient care. Public reporting of HAI data allows Californians to assess the quality of care in hospitals and make more informed health care choices. The map provides information about five types of HAI from the 393 California acute care hospitals. Findings on the map are presented as lower infection rates than similar hospitals; higher infection rates than similar hospitals; or the same as the infection rates in similar hospitals.
Influenza (flu) can be transmitted in hospitals from ill healthcare providers (HCP) to patients. HCP are encouraged to receive annual vaccination to prevent them from acquiring and transmitting the flu to patients and coworkers. This map shows HCP flu vaccination rates reported by California hospitals for 2015-2016 flu season. To be on track to achieve the national Healthy People goal of 90% vaccination by 2020, hospitals should have reported at least 78% of HCP received vaccination in 2015-2016. Findings on the map are presented as lower than 78% HCP vaccinated or higher than 78% HCP
