2020 Infection Control On Demand Webinar Series

SKU# WEB20IC

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates there are approximately 1.7 million new cases of infections that are acquired by patients during their stay in hospitals every year. Of these, approximately 99,000 result in death (although there may be other factors besides infection), making health care–associated infections (HAIs) one of the top ten causes of death in the United States. From a business perspective, this translates into a cost of approximately $4.5–$6.5 billion a year for hospitals to combat these infections.
