This is the eigth HAI Annual Report on the surveillance of Healthcare Associated Infections (HAI) in Scotland covering the period January - December 2016.
Health Protection Scotland is supporting the World Health Organisation (WHO) ‘Clean your hands’ campaign which focuses on antibiotic resistance with the theme of ‘Fight Antibiotic Resistance – it’s in your hands’.
In support of this, we have published our HAI Annual Report which details the latest figures on healthcare associated infections. These continue to represent a threat to patient safety across Scotland and to safe care, wherever that is delivered. The threat of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) remains a key focus for current and future health protection strategies.
An infographic to accompany the Executive Summary and each chapter of the HAI Annual Report is available to download below.
