  • A 19 percent decrease in SSIs related to the 10 select procedures tracked in the report between 2008 and 2013
  • A 6 percent increase in CAUTI between 2009 and 2013; although initial data from 2014 seem to indicate that these infections have started to decrease
  • An 8 percent decrease in hospital-onset MRSA bacteremia between 2011 and 2013
  • A 10 percent decrease in hospital-onset C. difficile infections between 2011 and 2013
