Every year about 2 million people acquire an infection during their hospital stay and almost 100,000 of them die due to their infections. Most of these infections are bacterial infections that are resistant to commonly used antibiotics, with MRSA being the most virulent and rapidly growing infections. In 2005 [the latest available data year] there were 386,600 cases of MRSA infections in hospitals and those who were infected with MRSA are hospitalized an average of 10.0 days, about 6 days LONGER than they needed to stay had they not contract the infection. And more than 94,000 of the MRSA infections are the most dangerous kind- the kind that attacks your heart, lungs and bloodstream.
