Things are getting increasingly festive this time of year, but something scary is looming… the flu.

Breaking down institutional silos is a big topic of conversation in healthcare today, as caregivers, administrators and others recognize that when everyone works together outcomes improve. It is maybe a little ironic, then, that an area of healthcare often thought of as it is own "thing," infection prevention, is one where cooperation is most critical.
