A Healthcare Associated Infection (HAI) is an infection that develops while a patient is receiving medical care. These infections are also known as Hospital-Acquired Infections, but because these infections are not limited to hospital environments, but can be transmitted in any health care setting, they are now referred to as Healthcare-Associated Infections, or HAIs. These infections are a significant cause of death in the United States.
