Measurement of the costs of hospital infection by prevalence surveys.
Hospital infection society. International conference. 2. London (GBR), 1990-09-02.
Data from seven single-day prevalence surveys were used to assess the costs of hospital-acquired infection (HAI) by matching infected cases with controls and reviewing patient case notes for details of mortality, length of hospitalization and antibiotic treatment costs.
Many cases with a high risk of HAI could not be matched and probably had inevitable infection.
Cases that could be matched had the same risks of HAI as the controls, and these infections were potentially avoidable.
