Healthcare providers dedicate their lives to deliver high-quality care to their patients. Yes, a big part of their jobs is to help sick people get better, but they are also responsible to make sure they don’t become the breeding ground for any viral infections. Preventing the spread of infectious diseases over treating them may seem like a low priority task, but the risk of not doing so is very high. According to this white paper from Zebra Technologies, 1.7 million patients are affected by healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) every year in the U.S. It is also estimated that at least one-third can be prevented if proper precautions are taken.
