Health care-associated infections (HAI) are a threat to patient safety and place a significant burden upon the health care system. The appropriate selection and use of rapid and accurate laboratory technologies for the routine screening of patients and detection of infections can have a significant impact on the control and reduction of HAI rates and on the overall care and management of patients.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Recognize common and emerging HAI.
  2. Discuss best practices for laboratory diagnosis of HAI.
  3. Describe appropriate actions to take when potential HAI are detected.
