Roughly 1.7 million hospital-associated infections occur annually in acute-care hospitals which result in tens of thousands of patient deaths and cost billions of dollars to the healthcare system. During a Becker's Hospital Review webinar, Dr. Lynn White, a practicing and president of Patient Shield Concepts, reported the estimated direct medical cost of HAIs is around $10 billion annually, not including cost-shifting to private payers. Including cost-shifting, HAIs may cost closer to between $35 billion and $45 billion for acute-care hospitals annually. The total direct, indirect and nonmedical social costs of HAIs are estimated at around $96 billion to $147 billion annually, including loss of work, legal costs and other patient factors.
