Patients with Alcohol Use Disorders at Greater Risk of Dying From Hospital Infections

Mittwoch 20. April 2011 von htm

Patients with alcohol use disorders who develop an infection while in the hospital are more likely to die from the infection, than patients without an alcohol disorder, a new study finds. These patients are also more likely to stay longer in the hospital and have higher costs.
Health care-associated infections, which patients pick up in the hospital or other health care setting, affect about 1.7 million Americans each year, according to the study, as reported in HealthDay. (Source: Join Together, 04/19/11)
