Why Support Healthcare Surfaces Institute?

Mary-Millard.png

The CDC reports that 1 out of every 25 patients will acquire an infection while being treated in a healthcare facility for something else. An estimated 1.7 million healthcare-acquired infections (HAIs) kill 90,000 people every year.

The problem is most of the surfaces in our healthcare facilities are difficult – if not impossible – to clean let alone disinfect. However, there is good news: HAIs as a result of surface contamination are preventable! 

The Healthcare Surfaces Institute is a non-profit organization founded in 2015 to address the issue of preventing surface contamination in healthcare environments.

Our mission is to reduce preventable infections through the collaboration of industry, academia, science, regulatory, and service sectors by interrupting the transmission of surface-related pathogens in healthcare in support of community health.
