Abstract

We report the development of a local healthcare associated infection prevalence survey methodology that uses multivariate adjustment and funnel plots to facilitate benchmarking of local survey results against Scottish National HAI Prevalence Survey data. The tool provides robust and consistent results that can be used to inform infection control strategy.
