To determine the excess hospital cost attributable to hospital acquired infection in a UK hospital 67 surgical patients with hospital acquired infection (HAI) were matched with uninfected controls on the primary features of the first operative procedure and primary diagnosis, and on the secondary features of sex, age and surgical service.
Costs were calculated from the hospital's unit costs for pathology, radiology and for the cost of one day's extra stay.
The mean cost of one day of antibiotic therapy was also measured.
