Infections, other health issues caused by hospitals are down, feds say

Infections, other health issues caused by hospitals are down, feds say

Infections and other health problems caused by hospitals dropped 17% from 2010 to 2014, which prevented 87,000 deaths and saved $20 billion in health care costs, federal health officials said Tuesday. The new report from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services follows a report last December that showed 50,000 fewer patients died in hospitals and $12 billion was saved from 2010 through 2012.
