Arizona seeking PSAs on health-care infections

Arizona health officials want to use public-spirited video to reduce the frequency of infections that people get in health-care settings such as hospitals while receiving treatment for other conditions.

The Department of Health Services and other public health organizations are sponsoring a contest to produce a public service announcement. The winning PSA will be used to warn the public about infections associated with health care and preventive steps that people can take.

Recommendations include having patients, doctors, nurses and visitors wash their hands and patients questioning whether they still need catheters or other invasive steps.

Submission of the winning PSA nets $500.
