HIDA Information For Hospitals

  • Hospital Infections Disclosure Act (HIDA)
    In May 2006, the South Carolina General Assembly passed the Hospital Infections Disclosure Act. Hospitals must report Hospital Acquired Infections (HAIs) from selected procedures to the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC). The reporting requirements are being phased in.
    Compliance with the HIDA Reporting Requirements is a condition of licensure for hospitals that perform the reportable procedures.

    On this website you can find:
    • Link to the Hospital Infections Disclosure Act (HIDA) law  
  • Future content will include an Infection Control Process Survey and information on the DHEC HIDA Hospital Validation Program.
