Healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) are complications of healthcare and linked with high morbidity and mortality. Each year, about 1 in 25 U.S. hospital patients is diagnosed with at least one infection related to hospital care alone; additional infections occur in other healthcare settings. Many HAIs are caused by the most urgent and serious antibiotic-resistant (AR) bacteria and may lead to sepsis or death. CDC uses data for action to prevent infections, improve antibiotic use, and protect patients.
  • 50 percent decrease in central line-associated bloodstream infections (CLABSI) between 2008 and 20143
  • 36 percent decrease in healthcare-associated invasive MRSA, 2008–2014. In addition, National Healthcare Safety Network (NHSN) data reported a 13% decrease (2011 – 2014) for hospital-onset MRSA bacteremia bloodstream infections, confirming overall trends.
  • 17 percent decrease in select surgical site infections (SSI)
  • 8 percent decrease in hospital-onset Clostridium difficile (C. difficile) infections between 2011 and 2014
  • 24 percent decrease in CAUTI in acute care hospital wards, 2009 – 2014, and 16 percent increase in CAUTI in hospital intensive care units.4
