NOSO in hospitals

Many measures under the NOSO Strategy are geared to improving the situation in hospitals – which are hardest hit by healthcare-associated infections (HAIs). The spectrum ranges from national databases on guidelines to concrete interventions to prevent HAIs.


As part of the NOSO Strategy, concrete preventive and monitoring tools are being developed and refined, with the aim of helping hospitals further reduce the risk of HAIs.
