HAI Prevalence Survey

The CDC healthcare-associated infection (HAI) prevalence survey 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.

Pneumonia 157,500
Gastrointestinal Illness 123,100
Urinary Tract Infections 93,300
Primary Bloodstream Infections 71,900
Surgical site infections from any inpatient surgery 157,500
Other types of infections 118,500
Estimated total number of infections in hospitals 721,800

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 theNational 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.
