Based on the survey on 1,000 hospitals in 33 countries, European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) estimates that that on any given day, one in 18 patients in a European hospital has healthcare-associated infection (HAIs). Most the countries (26 out of 33) reported the major three types of HAIs: pneumonia and lower respiratory tract infection, surgical site infection and urinary tract infection.
The estimated number of patients in UK acquiring HAIs is approx. 300,000 a year, according to a report by National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE). It costs the NHS approximately £1 billion a year, and £56 million of this is estimated to be incurred after patients are discharged from hospital. NHS has now adopted no-tolerance policy towards spread of HAIs.
