Low Infection Rates in Pediatrics

At HSS we approach infection prevention in our pediatric patients with special care.

The rate of central line associated blood stream infections on the inpatient pediatric unit has consistently been 0.00 over the 8 reported quarters. Additionally, the rate of catheter associated urinary tract infections on the inpatient pediatric unit has consistently been 0.00 over the 8 reported quarters.
