Public Infection Reports are Not Required by Georgia Hospitals
Georgia does not have a legal requirement for hospitals to create public accounts of known infections that patients can contract while receiving medical attention. A public account of infections is not uncommon, as 28 other states have this legal requirement.
Some Georgia hospitals like Piedmont Hospital are more forthcoming about potential infections than others, even though it is technically not a requirement.
