Preventing Hospital Infections

Real-World Problems, Realistic Solutions

Sanjay Saint, MD, MPH, Sarah Krein, PhD, RN, and Robert W. Stock

  • Focuses on the adaptive aspect of quality initiatives--including staff acceptance of changes--rather than merely focusing on the technical aspects
  • Uses an anecdotal, conversational approach geared to a model hospital, making it easy for readers to understand and apply the solutions provided
  • Draws upon the extensive personal experiences and research of its clinical authors for examples and practical solutions
  • Includes a questionnaire to help users pinpoint individual problems, plus a link to a web site offering advice tailored to their specific circumstances for hospitals having trouble with staff adherence to a quality initiative
