We all have sometime in our lives heard about patients getting more ill/serious when being treated in hospitals. It is due to infections acquire during their stay for treatment at hospitals. Known as healthcare-acquired infection (HAI), it is one of the major worries of Indian healthcare system and such issues not just lead to additional expenditure but can even cost life. So what causes HAI? It is the poorly sterilized medical equipment and instruments.

If you think that boiling them in hot water or soaking in alcohol or heating on flame is enough to disinfect equipment and instruments, you are wrong. Such lack of knowhow are the major reason for the increasing HAI in patients, which leads to high morbidity & mortality rate,
increased antibiotic load, long stay in hospitals and more.
