SPOTLIGHT: Hospitals reducing patient complications

The Institute for Healthcare Improvement's "100,000" lives campaign appears to be paying off, according a report by the Associated Press. Many hospitals participating in the progam have dramatically reduced the number of cases of pneumonia and blood infections in their intensive care units by following simple guidelines. "Morale seems to be way up at hospitals doing this," said Johns Hopkins' Dr. Peter Pronovost. "Now we're expanding it out to the OR, to the ER, to the other floors." Story
