Scottish Surveillance of Healthcare Associated Infection Programme (SSHAIP)



Record Detail

Setting up surveillance 09 May 2013

A surveillance programme is required to establish the cumulative incidence rates of SSI, both nationally and locally. The key aim of SSI surveillance is to improve the quality of patient care and a national surveillance programme is able to provide participating hospitals with robust rates in order for them to compare with similar hospitals and against benchmark rates.
