American College Of Surgeons - Inspiring Quality: Highest Standards, Better Outcomes

Quality Brief

Eisenberg AwardThe Spring 2015 issue of ACS NSQIP Quality Brief focuses on addressing surgical site infections. As of the fall of 2014, hospitals will be penalized for high rates of hospital-acquired conditions (HACs). Surgical site infection (SSI) will be added to the HAC measures in FY2015. Hospitals that act now can reduce complications, improve care and avoid the HAC penalty. Share your thoughts on our Facebook page or Twitter page @AmCollSurgeons.
