In 2017, around 11 samples of water were collected from Wide Bay hospital and Health services facilities in U.S., out of which nine samples were found positive with Legionella, which causes lung infection. Remediation measures were taken such as chlorine and heat treatment, pipes and tape replacements, and disposal of water through proper systems. According to BMJ journal, in 2012, healthcare-acquired diseases can be prevented. Medicare and private insurance company is eliminating the reimbursement due to high rate of hospital-acquired infection (HAI) incidence during 2014 and 2015, adding economic pressures on hospitals to reduce hospital-acquired diseases. Hospital acquired infections are usually caused when the shared equipment are not properly cleaned. Philips Healthcare is contributing towards the management of hospital acquired infections, which in turn, increases the cost of hospital acquired diseases testing and even leading to death of patients. The company provides single-patient use devices such as NIV mask, blood pressure cuffs, peripheral capillary oxygen saturation (Sp02) sensors, and ECG leads. These devices are designed to last for an entire patient stay at the hospital, which in turn, support the goal of reducing hospital acquired infections.
