Save Dollars & Improve Health By Avoiding Hospital Acquired Infections

On average, hospital acquired infections add $15,000 to a patient's hospital bill. One in 20 patients admitted to the hosptial get a hospital acquired infection. Your cost and the health of your employees are impacted significantly by these hospital acquired infections!!!

You can reduce your cost and improve the care for your employees and their families by sharing this CDC podcast on your intranet to educate your employees about how to protect themselves and their families from hosptial acquired infections if they are admitted to a hospital. CDC is making this podcast available to hospitals to play for patients upon admission, but being prepared ahead of time is the best policy and the hospitals your employees use may not play this video.
