Current Bill Summary

SB 864 - Under current law, the Department of Health and Senior Services is required to disseminate reports to the public based on data compiled showing for hospitals and ambulatory surgical centers a risk-adjusted nosocomial infection incidence rate for certain infections including ventilator-associated pneumonia. This act provides that upon the recommendation of the Infection Control Advisory Panel, one or more other quality indicators designed to better measure the risk of acquiring ventilator-associated pneumonia may be substituted for a risk-adjusted nosocomial infection incidence rate in such reports.
