Smart bathroom design can curb spread of hospital infections

December 14, 2017

On any given day, about one in 25 patients has at least one healthcare-related infection1

The most recent studies have found:

• U.S. hospitals reported 722,000 HAIs

• 75,000 patients with HAIs died during their hospitalizations2

• HAIs cost hospitals $9.8 billion annually

An infographic from the Sloan website details how smart bathroom design can be a big factor in preventing them.
