PROOF 8000 DIE EACH YEAR IN CANADA
The Public Health Agency of Canada estimates that each year more than 200,000 Canadians contract an infection while receiving health care and that more than 9,000 of them die every year.
The CDC in Atlanta says it costs hospitals about $269 to fight each infection.
When you multiply 200,000 Canadian patients at an average cost of $269 the answer is about $54 million Canadian dollars every year.
The annual cost of FIGHTING INFECTIONS is alarming to me as I’m sure it would be to you and
and their respective health-care budgets.
