What is my risk of a hospital-acquired infection?

You are here:

Your risk of getting an infection in hospital is approximately 8 in 100 (8%); this includes getting MRSA or a Clostridium difficile bowel infection.  This figure is higher if you are in a “high-risk” group of patients such as patients who have had:

  • long-term drainage tubes (e.g. catheters);
  • bladder removal;
  • long hospital stays; or
  • multiple hospital admissions.
