Holding hospitals accountable: Reporting hospital-acquired infections
Sacramento Press

The California HealthCare Foundation Center for Health Reporting approached The Sacramento Press in December to work on a project that would shed light on the area’s hospital infection rates in anticipation of a statewide Jan. 3 release, that will make that information public for all California hospitals. This is the first time such data is required to be released to the public in California, thanks to Nile’s Law. The law is named after 15-year-old Nile Moss who died of a hospital-acquired infection in Orange County. His mother, Carole, is responsible for much of the activism behind getting Nile’s Law passed.
