Survey on Infectious Diseases

  • Over 1.7 million people contract infections in U.S. hospitals each year. This includes 880,000 MRSA infections alone.[1]
     
  • If you multiply the number of infections in the U.S. by the average cost of treating those infections (about $15,000), you see that annually it costs U.S. hospitals $25.5 billion.[2]
     
  • Many hospital acquired infections are not covered by Medicare[3].
Can you afford not to reduce the transmission of infectious diseases?
