A Top 10 Killer In The US, Healthcare-Associated Infections and the Patient Experience Have Not Been Widely Covered In News

Though it is a top ten killer in the US, Health-Associated Infections (HAI) have not received the level of attention compared to other other diseases. Yet, the facts are still staggering and the human experience is one still plagued by fear and uncertainty. Do you know how to protect yourself and loved ones from HAI?

We created this visualisation to accompany an article focuses on the human side of the story, which shares advise from three people who have experienced HAI first hand, and attempts to give you a glimpse at how HAI impacts each of us today. With the age of antibiotics coming to a close, it is more important than ever to have the knowledge to protect yourself and loved ones when visiting healthcare facilities, from a hospital, an outpatient clinic, or even your own physician’s office.
