If a jumbo jet crashed into the ocean every single day, it would roughly equal the number of Americans who die each day following superbug infections acquired at U.S. hospitals. Far from being some hyped-up scare story, that’s actually the conclusion of none other than the CDC, which has now publicly warned that 1 in 25 hospital patients gets infected and tens of thousands die each year.
“On any given day, 1 in 25 hospital patients has at least one healthcare-associated infection,” reports the CDC newsroom.(1)
“The CDC’s 2011 survey of 183 hospitals showed that an estimated 648,000 patients nationwide suffered 721,000 infections, and 75,000 of them died,” reports the Washington Post.(2)
If you do the math, that comes out to 205 deaths per day, on average, in U.S. hospitals.
