Abstract

An important role of public health agencies is to define the unacceptable. This concept has particular relevance for healthcare‐associated infections. Evidence indicates that, with focused efforts, these once‐formidable infections can be greatly reduced in number, leading to a 'new normal' for healthcare‐associated infections as rare, unacceptable events.
