This month’s refresh of Hospital Compare will include an update to hospital overall star ratings. This could again generate media interest, so KHA is sharing the AHA Member Advisory with members with some background information along with talking points on hospital-acquired conditions (HACs).

By Sherry Kolb, RN - President of Qualivis, a KHA Solutions Group Affinity Partner

When you think of a hospital, you think of a safe space – a place to go to recover from illness or heal from injury. Increasingly, however, that sense of security is threatened by acts of violence committed against the people who have dedicated their career to help others. Data from numerous national organizations indicate that workplace violence is on the rise, with health care workers at a four times greater risk of being a victim of on-the-job violence than workers in any other industry. In fact, 2013 data from the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), an arm of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, indicate that 9,200 non-fatal workplace violence-related injuries were reported that year among health care workers. This accounts for more than 67 percent of all non-fatal workplace violence-related injuries across all industries. Research from the Occupational Safety and Health...

AHA has shared the following Cyber Alert for hospitals:

A U.S.-led airstrike January 3 in Iraq eliminated Qassem Soleimani, the head of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC)-Quds Force, a U.S.-designated Foreign Terrorist Organization. Although the U.S. government has not identified a specific threat from Iran targeting U.S. health care, the public has been asked to remain vigilant for physical and cyber-based suspicious activity.

Many in the U.S. government believe that Iran will attempt a retaliatory strike against U.S. interests overseas or potentially against U.S. critical infrastructure via a cyberattack. Iran has used cyberattacks to conduct retaliatory strikes against the U.S. in the past and possesses a significant offensive cyber capability, including the ability to destroy data, disrupt computer networks and cause significant financial loss. If cyberattacks against other U.S. critical infrastructure or entities occur, collateral damage or disruption to health care...

The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response (ASPR) released the following guidelines for hospitals and health care facilities to consider to ensure they are prepared for possible attacks on public infrastructure.

In collaboration with HC3, H-ISAC, DHS and the law enforcement community, ASPR is actively monitoring an increase in malicious cyber activities as result of heightened tensions between the United States and Iran. In the past, the Iranian regime actors and proxies have initiated destructive attacks against United States infrastructure; however, there are currently no specific, credible threats against U.S. infrastructure.

Iran and their proxies have often employed "wiper" attacks that are more destructive than ransomware or denial of service attacks. Yesterday, the Department for Homeland Security (DHS) issued a statement encouraging all critical infrastructure operators to ...
