    Abstract

    Public reporting of healthcare-associated infections is pervasive, with 33 states and the District of Columbia mandating public disclosure. We surveyed hospital epidemiologists on the perceived value of state public reports. Respondents believed consumers are unaware and do not consider the information important, but they indicated that epidemiologists have a role in consumer education.
