Welcome to the Infection Prevention and Control Initiative

Healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) in hospitals and other healthcare facilities result in significant economic consequences on both the nation and the state’s healthcare system. The national cost of these preventable infections is estimated to exceed more than 20 billion dollars annually. Expenditures related to HAIs include those incurred directly by the healthcare facility, indirect costs related to productivity, morbidity and mortality, and intangible costs related to diminished quality of life.

The Infection Prevention and Control Initiative is a program designed to improve patient safety and the quality of care for Nevada’s healthcare consumers - focusing on the utilization of evidence-based “best practices” to prevent HAIs in healthcare facilities.
