Research    
     
Nearly 100,000 people die annually due to healthcare associated infections (HAIs). In addition, patients who develop HAIs are likely to experience longer hospital stays – with the average length of stay for a patient with an HAI at about 22 days, while those without an HAI (adjusting for patient differences) have an average stay of about five days. Patients with HAIs are 30% more likely to return to the hospital, compared to just 6% for patients without this complication. Total costs added to the healthcare system from HAIs are estimated at between $35 and $88 billion per annum.
