This is the seventh HAI Annual Report on the surveillance of Healthcare Associated Infections (HAI) in Scotland covering the period January - December 2015.
It provides a stocktake of the epidemiology of HAI in Scotland to supplement the routine quarterly reports of the mandatory surveillance programmes for Staphylococcus aureus, Clostridium difficile and surgical site infection, which are run by HPS.
The aim of this report is to identify key information on HAI in Scotland, demonstrating the burden of infection, trends in infection incidence, share supplementary epidemiological and microbiological data from the national reference laboratories and identify future priorities.
An infographic to accompany the Executive Summary and each chapter of the HAI Annual Report is available to download below.
