Did you know Healthcare-Associated Infections (HAIs) affect 3% of patients, claim the lives of 75,000 people annually, and cost the healthcare industry billions?
As HAIs continue to increase in hospital environments, protecting patients and staff is as important as ever. This means protecting the medical devices that are used on the patients. Additionally, the Affordable Care Act has provisions that penalize hospitals for high infection rates.
