Infections

Infections are common and can be especially costly when treatment is delayed or when the patient has additional chronic conditions. Statistics show that pneumonia, septicemia and urinary tract infections were responsible for more than 1 million inpatient stays each in 2010. Infections can be hospital-acquired which reinforces the need for thorough research on a facility’s infection rate before seeking care.

Infectious Pneumonia

An infection in one or both lungs caused by bacteria or viruses.
