HAI Prevalence Survey

The CDC healthcare-associated infection (HAI) prevalence surveyExternal Web Site Icon provides an updated national estimate of the overall problem of HAIs in U.S. hospitals. Based on a large sample of U.S. acute care hospitals, the survey found that on any given day, about 1 in 25 hospital patients has at least one healthcare-associated infection. There were an estimated 722,000 HAIs in U.S acute care hospitals in 2011. About 75,000 hospital patients with HAIs died during their hospitalizations. More than half of all HAIs occurred outside of the intensive care unit.

HAI Progress Report

The CDC National and State Healthcare-Associated Infections Progress Report is a report that gives a closer look at the healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) most commonly reported to CDC using the National Healthcare Safety Network (NHSN). This is an annual report that describes national and state progress in preventing central line-associated bloodstream infections, catheter-associated urinary tract infections, surgical site infections after colon surgery and surgical site infections after abdominal hysterectomy. The report is based on 2012 data.

Monitoring HAIs

CDC receives data on healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) through parallel efforts.
