Data Highlights

From the National and State Healthcare-Associated Infections Progress Report

  • Nationally, among acute care hospitals there was about 1-13% statistically significant decrease in specific HAI types between 2016 and 2017
  • Highlights of  2017 state performance compared to the 2015 national Baseline SIR of 1:
    • 41 states performed better on at least two infection types
    • 5 states performed worse on at least two infection types

See: Current HAI Progress Report for more information about national and state-level HAI data, measured using the standardized infection ratio (SIR).

From the HAI Hospital Prevalence Survey

  • On any given day, about 1 in 31 hospital patients has at least one healthcare-associated infection. Patients in the 2015 HAI Hospital Prevalence survey were at least 16% less likely than patients in the 2011 survey to have an HAI.
    • 3% of hospitalized patients in the 2015 survey had one or more HAI.
    • There were an estimated 687,000 HAIs in U.S. acute care hospitals in 2015. About 72,000 hospital patients with HAIs died during their hospitalizations.
