Hospital acquired pneumonia or HAP, has become one of the most common types of hospital acquired infections in the acute care setting. It is in the best interest, financially, of the healthcare system to implement and integrate potential solutions and practice policies that will mitigate the risk for HAP as well as improve the overall quality of patient care offered at their facility. Oral care is becoming an increasingly recognized intervention with positive patient benefits and can help mitigate the risk for patients to develop hospital acquired pneumonia.
