REASONS TO GET INVOLVED, THE KEY FACTS…
- 1 in 10 patients harmed while receiving care.
- 1.4 million people suffering worldwide at any given time from infections
acquired in hospitals (37,000 deaths in the EU annually).
- Between €4.65 billion and €22.5 billion per country every year due to
litigation, infections acquired in hospitals, lost income, disability and medical
- Sepsis, which arises due to infections and poor patient safety, affects
approximately 377 people per 100,000 in the EU/US. There is a higher
incidence of sepsis than stroke, cancer (prostate, breast and lung
combined), heart and HIV cases and costs more than €11 billion per year
(and continues to rise).
