Medical Malpractice – Hospital Negligence: the cost of replacing 6 frequently-touched near patient surfaces in a 20-bed ICU with antimicrobial copper can be recouped in 2 months, based on less infection and shorter stays

Installation of antimicrobial copper surface is a very effective way to fight infections and prevent personal injury due to hospital negligence. A unique study presented by the York Health Economics Consortium (YHEC) at the International Conference on Prevention and Infection Control (ICPIC) in Geneva, investigated the economic benefits of deploying antimicrobial copper touch surfaces in intensive care units (ICUs) to fight the rampant international epidemic of healthcare-associated infections (HCAIs) . The model is transparent and the results show rapid return on the investment.
