Scope:Help on this termThe National Staphylococcus aureus Bacteraemia Dataset collates information provided by jurisdiction on the number of cases of healthcare-associated Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus) bloodstream infections and the number of patient bed days under surveillance by infection control programs. The scope of this dataset is to present this information and to provide hospital-level data for understanding and reporting this information. Information on more than 700 public and private hospitals is available online through the MyHospitals website and reports present graphics for the 115 major and large hospitals across Australia. The intent of this work is to inform consumers, help hospitals and health service managers to identify opportunities to reduce the rate of preventable infection, and to stimulate improvements in the collection and consistency of national statistics.
