Does your hospital have proper sanitization protocols in place?
On any given day, about 1 in 31 hospitalized patients have at least one Healthcare-Associated Infection, or HAI. Altogether, about 687,000 patients acquired infections while being treated in acute care hospitals in the U.S. in 2015 — and about 72,000 of these patients died. ²
These outcomes are obviously not acceptable from a clinical standpoint, but with the rise of value-based care models and patient accessibility to each hospital’s mortality and infection rates, healthcare organizations can suffer financially if they are not delivering high quality care.
