Our orthopedic infection rate continues to be extremely low, and our performance on nationally-recognized best practice measures is near perfect. NEBH has the lowest infection rate in Massachusetts.
Our groundbreaking infection prevention and control program has brought us both recognition and results. We start with a state-of-the-art facility, high standards of cleanliness, and a hospital-wide focus on hand hygiene. We add some of the most leading-edge preventive practices and advanced measures for screening and eliminating drug-resistant bacteria. The results are fewer infections and more successful outcomes.
