If there was a simple, inexpensive, readily available step once each year that would cut healthcare worker risk for infection, decrease absenteeism, and reduce deaths in their patients, wouldn’t almost all HCW take that step?
Join us to help demonstrate the commitment to high quality care in Montana with the Healthcare Worker Immunization Study!
Each year the MT Flex Grant will run a Quality Improvement Study focusing on healthcare worker immunizations. The national goal is 90% and we know Montana can blow that out of the water!
Tracking, marketing and other applicable tools are available in our toolkit. Data collection for the 2017-2018 flu season is due to be entered into NHSN by May 15, 2018.
