On July 23, 2012, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) published a notice soliciting public comments on the development of a new long-term care facilities strategy module of the National Action Plan to Prevent Healthcare-Associated Infections: Roadmap to Elimination. This module will be part of a broader plan to reduce healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) in acute care hospitals, ambulatory surgical centers, and end stage renal disease facilities, and to increase healthcare personnel influenza vaccination coverage. Comments on the draft document will be accepted until August 22, 2012.
