Infection Prevention Saves Lives and Money

Infection Prevention Saves Lives and Money

A new study published in the American Journal of Infection Control found that elderly patients admitted to Intensive Care Units are approximately 35 percent more prone to death within five years of their stay in the hospital if they developed an infection during their visit. When two of the most common healthcare-associated infections were prevented, the odds of the patients’ survival not only increased, but the cost of care was reduced by more than $150,000.
