Every year, hundreds of thousands of patients develop infections in hospitals around the nation—infections that can cause complications and increase the risk of readmission. That’s why preventing post-operative infection must be a vital component of any successful surgical program and why, at New England Baptist Hospital, we’re committed to reducing our infection rates to zero. Our orthopedic infection rate continues to be extremely low, and our performance on nationally recognized best practice measures is near perfect. Learn what we do to prevent infections, and what you can do to help.
Medication errors are one of the most common causes of harm to patients. Learn about the programs our healthcare team has successfully implemented to prevent errors so that you can be confident in your safety.
