Hospital-acquired infections – HAIs

Infection control in hospitals to fight HAIs

A hospital-acquired infection refers to an infection that develops in a patient 48 hours or more after admission to a hospital1. On average 20-30 percent of the HAIs occurring under current healthcare conditions can be prevented1, 2. HiBi® antiseptics from Mölnlycke Health Care stand for high-quality antiseptic protection, for both hand cleaning and whole body washing.
