The time is now to stop surface-related infections and deaths
The Healthcare Surfaces Institute (HSI) is the only organization to bring together global, multidisciplinary experts to focus on the threat surfaces present in our healthcare environment. HSI is working with manufacturers, researchers, healthcare providers and other experts in the field to change how surfaces are designed, manufactured, installed and maintained.
This will take everyone working together.
Surfaces can transmit microbes that cause deadly infections and are a serious threat to our health.

Healthcare-Associated Infections (HAIs):
HAIs are infections patients acquire while in a healthcare facility that are unrelated to the original medical care they received. The most common cause is pathogens on surfaces.
We develop sustainable solutions to stop HAIs in their tracks. Join us!
Our on-demand webinars address how contaminated surfaces contribute to the spread of microbes that cause deadly infections and how this can be prevented.
