HAIs affect more than 1.7M patients and cost U.S. acute hospitals over $35-$45 billion annually
The High Costs of Healthcare-Associated Infections (HAIs)
Hospitals should be safe havens for healing. Yet every year, one in 25 patients contracts at least one healthcare-associated infection (HAI) while in the hospital. Of these 1.7 million HAI cases, approximately 99,000 end in death.*
