Hospital Infections Can Happen to Anyone

hospital infections munley lawHospital infections are an extremely serious matter. Every year thousands of patients contract serious infections – very often fatal – while they are hospitalized or being treated at other healthcare facilities. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, an estimated 721,800 healthcare-associated infections occurred in the United States in 2011. This means that in any given day, 1 in 25 hospital patients receive an infection from a hospital or medical personnel. And what’s worse is that 75,000 of these patients died as a result of an hospital infection.

Hospitals are also seeing an increase in the infection named Clostridium difficile, more commonly known as C-diff. C-Diff is known for causing severe intestinal illnesses. In some studies, hospitals reported a greater incidence of C-diff infections than MRSA. And C-diff, which is also resistant to many antibiotics as is MRSA, is spread by fecal spores that are impervious to even the most conventional cleaners and hand sanitizers that can effectively eliminate the threat of MRSA. Although MRSA is generally considered the more dangerous of the two types of infections because it can prove fatal, a new form of C-Diff has appeared that is more resistant, more fatal and easier to contract. Studies have shown the C-Diff has a hospital contraction rate of 25% over MRSA.
