Colorado waiting on hospital data
Denver Post, January 17, 2008
A legislative deadline has passed for Colorado hospitals to report rates of acquired infections. The requirement is due to a bill that mandates hospitals, ambulatory surgery centers and dialysis centers to report infection rates annually. The federal reporting system for hospital-acquired infections has proved difficult for many Colorado hospitals to navigate, according to state officials. In addition, the national database also is not set up to collect data from ambulatory surgery centers, making it impossible for Colorado's 102 centers to meet the mandate.
