The Center of Disease Control and Prevention reports that approximately one in 31 US patients has at least one infection associated with his or her hospital care. Even though there has been great progress over the years, health care providers will admit this number is still too high. This is why Progressive Building Services strives to help your facility drastically reduce the number of healthcare associated infections.
A healthcare associated infection, or HAI, is an infection that a patient can get while receiving treatment for medical or surgical conditions. They can occur in many settings, such as hospitals, surgical centers, nursing homes or rehabilitation facilities.
Nearly all hospitalized patients are susceptible to contracting one healthcare associated infection, but some are more at risk than others. Young children, the elderly, and those with compromised immune systems are more likely to get an infection. The CDC estimates that roughly 1.7 million infections each year are caused by a healthcare associated infection.
