Are you Prepared for an Outbreak?

A review shows which states are most prepared for an outbreak of infectious disease.

The Trust for America’s Health and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation ranked states based on ten different indicators. The Foundation measured states on everything from vaccination rates to state efforts to decrease health care associated infections.

Most states measured as successful when it came to the capabilities of public health labs during emergencies or drills.

The indicator where states were least successful evaluated efforts to minimize healthcare associated infections. Researchers looked at two types of infections, but the one in which states were the least successful, were infections associated with central lines.

Have a look at how your state did.
