CDC/NHSN Surveillance Definition of Healthcare-Associated Infection and Criteria for Specific Types of Infections in the Acute Care Setting

This chapter contains the CDC/NHSN surveillance definition of healthcare-associated infection (HAI) and criteria for all specific types of HAI. Comments and reporting instructions that follow the site-specific criteria provide further explanation and are integral to the correct application of the criteria. This chapter also provides further required criteria for the specific infection types that constitute organ/space surgical site infections (SSI) (e.g., mediastinitis that may follow a coronary artery bypass graft, intra-abdominal abscess after colon surgery).
