Thank you, Barbara Dunn for drawing my attention to the damage caused by Healthcare-associated infections. Isn’t it ironical that in-patients in hospitals fall prey to infections other than the ones they were being treated for in the first place? I was surprised to hear that healthcare-associated infections are one of the top ten leading causes of death in the United States. This is prevalent all over the world with the World Health Organization (WHO) estimating that, at any point in time, 1.4 million people worldwide suffer from infections acquired in hospitals.
