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.
SSIs are now the most common and costly health care associated infection. At NEBH our efforts are focused on individualized care always treating each patient as a unique individual. Every surgery is different and we strive to control all variables that will reduce and eliminate our patients risk for infection.
