Infection Prevention & Control
As healthcare professionals, it’s our job to not only help you with the medical issue you’re facing, but also protect you from other medical issues while you’re in our care. Northeast Georgia Medical Center (NGMC) has an entire department, Infection Prevention & Control, which is dedicated to putting best practices in place to prevent and track hospital acquired infections.
NGMC Infection Prevention & Control compares our rates against our peers using national benchmarks set by the National Healthcare Safety Network (NHSN), which is a system designed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
The statistics below were compiled by Fourth Quarter 2012 through Third Quarter 2013 discharges, as reported to the Hospital Quality Alliance.
