A business case for CuVerro antimicrobial copper surfaces in Healthcare Environments
Bacterial contamination on touch surfaces leads to Hospital-Acquired Infections (HAI). This is significant given that at any given time, an alarming 1 in 20 hospital patients have an HAI.
Each year, hospitals spend millions of dollars on cleaning. It’s not enough, because HAIs continue to rise. Regular cleaning is limited in its ability to eliminate bacteria to terminal cleaning levels and reduce infections because of its episodic nature.
The Cost of Care is High: On average, healthcare-associated infections (HAI) add 19.2 days and $43,000 to typical hospital stays. The annual cost to treat these infections is estimated at a staggering $45 billion. For a typical hospital, this could mean an annual direct cost of $6-$8 million to treat HAI. *
