Healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) are infections acquired by patients during the course of receiving medical care for some other condition. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, approximately 1 out of every 20 hospitalized patients will contract an HAI.

This webinar provides a review of U.S. state and territorial HAI laws, the most common legal provisions and the role of the federal government, as well as a case example of Arkansas.
