Burden of healthcare-associated infections among hospitalized children within community hospitals participating in an infection control network.
We describe the frequency of pediatric healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) identified through prospective surveillance in community hospitals participating in an infection control network. Over a 6-year period, 84 HAIs were identified. Of these 51 (61%) were pediatric central-line-associated bloodstream infections, and they often occurred in children <1 year of age.
