Each year, an alarming number of people become even more sick from being in the hospital after acquiring hospital-related infections.

According to a study published in Health Affairs, nearly one out of every three hospital patients develops a hospital-acquired infection from a medical error.

Hospitals are mostly responsible for these type of preventable medical errors. The federal government has recently become tougher on these mistakes by not reimbursing hospitals for conditions that are caused by these mistakes.
