Understanding Infection Control in Healthcare Facilities

Course Description

Infection Prevention and Control is a top priority for healthcare facilities. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), at any given time, 1 in 31 patients suffer from a Healthcare Associated Infection (HAI). These cost healthcare systems across the globe valuable time, money, and labor; HAIs can cost anywhere from $21,000 to $60,000 per patient. In total, HAIs affect 1.7 million patients and cost U.S. hospitals over $35 billion annually.

These statistics highlight the importance on why Infection Control in today’s healthcare environment is more crucial than ever.
