In the US and Europe, an estimated 510% of patients are expected to develop an infection during their hospital stay. The four main types of infections that occur within the hospital setting are urinary tract infections, hospital acquired pneumonia, surgical site infections and blood-stream infections, accounting for approximately 35%, 15%, 14% and 10% respectively.
