Healthcare Associated Infections (HAIs)

In England research has shown that Healthcare Associated Infections (HAI’s) have huge cost implications to the health sector, as well as causing distress to the patient, their family and those who care for them after leaving hospital.  HAI’s effect one in ten patients, resulting in a hospital stay of 2.5 times longer than unaffected patients and costs the health sector almost £3,000 more to treat.  Those affected are also more likely to require additional treatment following their hospital stay.  Overall HAIs are reported to cost the health sector almost £1bn per year in additional costs.
