Saving Nearly 40 Lives a Year

By Chris Hermann

Two weeks ago, we released new data showing that, in our ten most recent hospital installations, healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) decreased by an average of over 60%. We covered the financial impact on these hospitals last week. While this is certainly exciting and rewarding news, what has the impact been on patients?

372 Infections Prevented Annually

For these ten hospital installations alone, a decrease in HAIs of 61.4% translates to 372 people a year that are no longer catching an infection in the hospital. That’s more than one HAI prevented each day. That’s significant – HAIs cause suffering, personal financial costs, and potentially lifelong compromised health for patients.

39 Lives Saved Each Year

The CDC’s most recent figures show that 10.48% of patients with HAIs will die. By preventing 372 infections a year, we’re also saving 39 lives annually. These 39 people get to carry on with their lives, working in their careers, loving their families, and celebrating milestones with their friends.
