Summary:
Getting sick or dying from something you catch while in the hospital happens more than you may think; 1.7 million people get infections in hospitals every year, and nearly 100,000 people will die from them. While hospitals have safety measures in place, they can’t protect you from what they don’t know is a potential threat.
