Hawaii Hospital Infections

Compare hospital infections at Hawaii hospitals for 2018. Each hospital’s healthcare-associated infection rate is shown for CLABSI (Central Line-Associated Bloodstream Infection), CAUTI (Catheter Associated Urinary Tract Infections), surgical infections from colon surgery, surgical site infections from abdominal hysterectomy, CDI (Clostridioides difficile infections), and MRSA (methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus). Report also shows the level of influenza vaccination coverage of healthcare personnel in hospitals. In the 2018-2019 flu season, only 8 hospitals met the goal of 90% coverage. Overall, just 83% of Hawaii hospital staff were vaccinated against the flu. As an example, Hilo Medical Center and Straub Clinic and Hospital both missed the vaccination target in large part because they permitted nearly 300 staff each, to decline the flu shot without having a valid medical contraindication.
