HAIs are infections that result as an unintended consequence of receiving healthcare. TIPCU surveillance reports contain numbers and rates of infections caused by key organisms, responsible for many HAIs. TIPCU will publish these reports quarterly.
The indicators contained in the TIPCU surveillance reports are:
- Staphylococcus aureus bacteraemia (bloodstream infection)
- Clostridium difficile infection (CDI)
- Vancomycin resistant Enterococci (VRE)
- Hand hygiene compliance rates
- Antibiotic utilisation surveillance (to commence)
