Low Infection Rates in Pediatrics

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

HSS Pediatrics consistently achieves infection rates that are below NDNQI® benchmarks.* This includes both central line-associated blood stream infections (CLABSI) and catheter-associated urinary tract infections (CAUTI).
