It will be interesting to see which hospitals embrace this. HAI is extremely profitable for them. Just a few are leading the charge in patient safety while others do nothing.

HAIs are not profitable to hospitals (I work in infection control at a 600-bed acute care facility). CMS will not reimburse the hospital for a stay for which HAI contributes to a longer stay.
