Health care-associated infections, or HAIs, are among the most common preventable causes of mortality in the United States, affecting one out of every 25 hospitalized patients. They are a significant cause of illness, death and excess cost in all health care settings.
CAUTI: affects roughly 290,000 hospital patients each year
CLABSI: approximately 31,000 cases occur annually with a mortality rate from 12 to 25 percent.
