Patient Safety Materials at Healthy Roads Media

HealthyRoads Media contains free patient and consumer health information in a variety of formats and languages.

It has recently added a set of patient safety materials adapted from guides created by SHEA (Society for Healthcare Epidemiology of America)
and partners and the development support was provided by Inova Fairfax Hospital.

The materials are in English (Spanish coming soon) and  are available as handouts, web-videos and downloadable mobile videos.

The  topics covered are

  • Catheter-Associated Bloodstream Infections
  • Catheter-Associated Urinary Tract Infections
  • Clostridium Difficile
  • MRSA
  • Surgical Site Infections
  • Vancomycin Resistant Enterococcus
  • Ventilator Associated Pneumonia
