Details:  Rap music and healthcare don't usually go together. But at Crouse Hospital, physicians and nurses found that spittin' some rhymes could motivate staff to reduce hospital-acquired conditions and improve patient safety.

In the rap video, the chorus chants, "Hey HAC NO, Hey HAC NO, we want our complication rate to be zero ..."

The New York hospital also shows that while HAIs are no joke, a touch of humor helps reduce infections, endocrinologist Mickey Lebowitz and senior medical quality director for Crouse Hospital wrote in a January Hospital Impact post.

Lyrical inspiration: "We don't want our patients to get an HAC, its bad for them and us financially."
