Hospital infections gaining ground in Pennsylvania hospitals

A report released in the state of Pennsylvania, U.S,reveals that there were over 19,000 hospital acquired infections recorded across hospitals there in 2005.//

IT has been estimated that an average of just over 1% of the1.6 million patients whose case studies were looked into contracted hospital acquired infectionswhile getting treated in Pennsylvannian hospitals.
