The Performance Improvement Department is pleased to announce its current Infection Prevention-Related initiatives at PVMC:
- The Surgery Department joined the CO Hospital Association’s Collaborative regarding JOINTS to focus on evidence-based practices to reduce the risk of surgical infections in hip and knee replacement patients.
The state health department (CDPHE) invited us to participate in a nationwide hospital acquired infection prevalence study which was conducted in May.
