Hospital-acquired conditions (HAC) are a frequent, serious and potentially life-threatening safety event for pediatric patients. They can equate to longer hospital stays, higher health care costs, and higher patient morbidity and mortality rates.
Pediatric Learning Solutions' HAC Safety Suite can help you reduce the occurrence of HACs in your hospital.
