Hospital-acquired infections kill up to 99,000 people each year, plus cost an extra $33,000 to treat per person, reports the largest national study to date – 69 million discharge records from hospitals in 40 states. Fatal car accidents kill 39,000, much fewer than hospital acquired sepsis and pneumonia.
