In 2006, South Carolina state lawmakers passed the Hospital Infections Disclosure Act (HIDA). This law requires hospitals to report certain infection rates to the S.C. Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC) and the public.
Twice a year, hospitals are required to report infections that patients developed while being treated in the hospital. Hospitals are not required to report infections that patients had when they were admitted.
The current HIDA Annual Report is available at www.scdhec.gov/hai
Welcome to Greenville Health System. We’re happy that you’re able to visit your loved one during his or her stay with us. Visitors provide a vital service to our patients and to us, because you play an important role in helping create a warm and healing environment for our patients. Your presence is one of the most important parts of the recovery process because you provide the comfort and support of home.
To create the most pleasant possible environment for our patients, we encourage the presence of supportive family and loved ones. We ask that you help us provide a sense of safety and security and create a quiet and restful environment for our patients.
Ultimately, each patient has control over his or her visiting preferences, but in the interest of doing what is best for the patient, we have instituted some guidelines we ask our guests to observe during visits.
We hope that the amenities we’ve provided make your visit with us a pleasant one for you and a healing one for your loved one. Should you need information or wish to contact a patient, we can be reached at (864) 455-7000.
