abstract

  • Between 1999 and 2009, the incidence of MCS-associated HAI events increased; however, HAI-associated mortality decreased. That said, significant disparities exist in the hospital and demographic attributes associated with MCS-associated HAI, with attendant health policy implications. Moreover, HAI remains detrimentally linked to mortality during hospitalization.
