South Carolina hospitals band together to fight infections
South Carolina's private and university research hospitals are banding together to identify and curb hospital infections. Curbing infections could save the state's hospitals as much as $40 million a year and reduce the length of stay of patients by up to 24,000 days annually, according to the newly formed South Carolina Healthcare Quality Trust. The trust is a partnership of Health Sciences South Carolina, SC Hospital Association, and the Premier healthcare alliance.
