HAI Liaison IP Program

The regional HAI Liaison Infection Preventionist (IP) Program provides non-regulatory consultation and assistance to support HAI prevention.

Hospitals may request liaison IP assistance for:

  • An onsite assessment if HAI incidence remains high
  • Recommendations of HAI prevention strategies
  • Help with HAI surveillance or data validation methods
  • Suggestions for HAI data analysis, interpretation, and feedback to care providers

A liaison IP team is assigned to three defined regions:
