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
