Short Hospital-Acquired Complications Factsheets all HACs

These fact sheets, and other HACs resources released by the Commission, have been developed to support clinicians and others to reduce the occurrence and impact of HACs. 

Within this booklet, you will find fact sheets for 15 of the 16 nationally agreed HACs. A fact sheet has not been prepared for HAC 5 – ‘unplanned intensive care unit admission’ – as data about this HAC is not yet collected nationally.
