In addition to Hospitals, the CDC identifies Nursing Homes and Assisted Living (Long Term Care facilities), Out Patient Care Facilities, Rehabilitation Centers, Oncology Centers (outpatient and inpatient), Dialysis Treatment Facilities, Dental Offices, Physician Offices, Out Patient Surgery Centers, and Laboratory and Diagnostic Centers as significant risks to infection and exposure to pathogens.
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.
Seamlessly integrating the appropriate models with the existing HVAC system and strategic placement of portable models in potentially higher exposure areas will provide a comprehensive field of continuous microbial reduction.
