Executive Summary:

Discovering the Clinical and Financial Value of Sanitized Devices

Are your sanitization protocols in proper place?

 

On any given day, about 1 in 31 hospitalized patients have at least one Health-Associated Infection (HAI). Altogether, about 687,000 patients acquired infections while being treated in acute care hospitals in the U.S. in 2015—and about 72,000 of these patients died.

 

These statistics are obviously not acceptable from a clinical standpoint but with the rise of value-based care models and patient accessibility to each hospital’s mortality and infection rates, healthcare organizations can suffer financially if they are not delivering high quality care.
