Current HAI data reports are available on this page. For previous HAI reports, please visit the Data Archive page.
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.
