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 all California acute care hospitals. Findings on the map show if a hospital’s 2016 infection rate was better than National Baseline or Statewide Rate (green star), worse than (orange cross), or the same as (or no different) than(equal circle). Use the tabs at the top to show results on the map and individual hospital reports.
Health care providers (HCP) in hospitals should receive annual influenza (flu) vaccination to protect their patients, their families, and others in the community. HCP flu vaccination rates are an important measure of a hospital’s health care quality. The map shows HCP flu vaccination rates reported by California hospitals for the 2017-18 flu season. To be on track to achieve the national Healthy People goal of 90% vaccination by 2020, hospitals should have a vaccination rate of 84% or higher. The map shows which hospitals have an 84% or higher vaccination rate (green star) and which hospitals have a lower than 84% HCP vaccination rate (orange cross). Higher (green star) is better.
