Will Rise in Hospital-acquired Infections Fuel Demand for Medical Device Cleaning?

Hospital-acquired infections are believed to be one of the major health concerns affecting patient recovery, which has a major impact on mortality rates globally. According to WHO on the prevention of HAIs, the increase in the duration of hospitalization of persons suffering from HAIs was found to be approximately 8 days.

Thus, prolonged stays are a significant contributor to the overall costs incurred during hospitalization, thus raising clinical urgency to adopt measures for the prevention of infections.

High risk of infection from blood-borne pathogens, drug-resistant pathogens, and other infectious agents in operating rooms is one of the major concerns for hospitals.

It has been observed that consistent implementation of infection control and prevention measures has resulted in a significant decline in the number of HAI cases, and the scenario is likely to improve over the coming years if these measures are implemented at the same pace.
