Paterson, N.J. — The New Jersey Hospital Association has recognized St. Joseph’s Regional Medical Center for taking steps to reduce and eliminate the number of hospital-acquired infections.

The hospital has eliminated ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP), a hospital-acquired infection, for two or more years, said Aline Holmes, RN, APNC, MSN, senior VP, Clinical Affairs, NJHA.

She recently presented the hospital’s MICU with an award for this achievement. St. Joseph’s was part of NJHA’s ICU Collaborative two years ago to improve patient safety and the quality of care provided in critical care units.
