It happens far too often. A patient enters the hospital and develops pneumonia. The stats don’t lie - pneumonia is the most common hospital-acquired infection (HAI).1 The risk is real and not just for ventilated or elderly patients in the ICU. Pneumonia can strike patients in every unit of the hospital. It’s estimated that one in every 100 patients will be affected by non-ventilator hospital-acquired pneumonia (NV-HAP).2
In a multistate prevalence study, 65% of hospital-acquired pneumonia was non-ventilator associated pneumonia (NV-HAP).3
Your hospital can take action to prevent NV-HAP while improving the quality of care and patient safety, lowering the risk of sepsis, reducing health care costs, and saving lives.2
