Healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) are the ones that are contracted by patients while they are receiving treatment for another medical condition in a healthcare setting. Thus HAIs can be acquired at any place where healthcare is delivered. HAIs are generally caused by infectious agents, pathogens, fungi, bacteria, and viruses. The risk factors associated with these infections are use of indwelling medical devices, surgeries, injections, contaminated healthcare environment, communication of diseases between workers and patients, and improper use of antibiotics.
HAIs are a major cause of mortality and morbidity on a worldwide scale. Each year HAIs lead to thousands of deaths. A majority of HAIs include conditions such as urinary tract infections, surgical site infections, bloodstream infections, gastroenteritis, and pneumonia.
