Lower Your Risk for Costly Infections

The CDC estimates that about one in 25 patients treated in hospitals get an infection that was caused by the treatment they received. Ambulatory surgery center and nursing home patients are at an increased risk for HAIs as well.

HAIs can cost you hundreds of thousands in reduced reimbursement and in public relations damage to your brand. Your ability to prevent or minimize infections is not only critical to patient safety, but to your organization’s overall health.
