Healthcare Epidemiology

The core of healthcare epidemiology is discovering healthcare-associated infections or other adverse events, how they occur and most importantly, how to prevent them. In recent years, protecting patients from acquiring infections while in the hospital has proven to be more challenging. We take pride in delivering the highest standard of infectious disease control. Using a hands-on approach, we monitor all aspects of potential infection to help prevent them from occurring during a patient's stay in the hospital.

Some of the most common healthcare-associated infections include:

  • Surgical site infections
  • Central line-associated bloodstream infection
  • Ventilator-associated pneumonia
  • Catheter-associated urinary tract infection
  • Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus (staph infection)
  • Vancomycin-Resistant Enterococcus

Your health and safety are our primary concern. If hospitalization is necessary for treatment, we will thoroughly discuss the potential risks for healthcare-associated infections and ways to work with healthcare professionals to help prevent them from occurring.
