Recommendation /

HFE presented its recommendations to deal with Healthcare-Associated Infections (HAIs) to encourage the European Commission and Member States to urgently adopt an effective strategy encompassing appropriate measures to significantly reduce this burden across Europe. Early detection during healthcare interventions – for example, through rapid pre-admission screening and ongoing surveillance – is a major element of effective infection control. Equally, effective HCAI prevention can reduce costs to national healthcare budgets as prevention is frequently more cost-efficient than remedy.
