A new Consumers Report analysis finds that hospitals across the U.S. have reduced deadly, but highly preventable, central-line bloodstream infections by 50 percent since 2008. In a new investigation of nearly 2,000 hospitals, Consumer Reports looks at the five-year track record of teaching hospitals to see which have successfully reduced these infections, and which have not. The report, available in the January issue of Consumer Reports, identifies 31 U.S. teaching hospitals on its lowest-performing “zero tolerance” list and 32 on its list of top performers.
