E-book for nurses aims to reduce 3 common HAIs

American Sentinel University now offers a free e-book as a guide to help nurses prevent common hospital-acquired infections.

The e-book, Are You Prepared to Identify and Prevent the Three Infections That Make Up Two-Thirds of All Healthcare-associated Infections," focuses on preventing central line-associated bloodstream infections, catheter-associated urinary tract infections and ventilator-associated pneumonia.

"Nurses play a key role in minimizing the occurrence of these infections," said Elaine Foster, PhD, MSN, RN, dean of nursing and healthcare programs at American Sentinel University. "It's important for nurses to be sure they do all they can to prevent HAIs from happening to their patients while saving their healthcare facility additional cost. This e-book is an excellent resource for nurses to review information about prevention and intervention for HAIs."
