Hospital Acquired Infections

Safeguarding healthcare settings’ health

Hospital-Acquired or nosocomial infections (HAI) are infections acquired during hospital care that are not present or incubating at admission to the hospital.

Transmission and impact

Surronding each patient

Transmitted from patient to patient or contaminated equipment and surfaces, HAI include catheter-associated urinary tract infections, bloodstream & surgical site infections, pneumonia, and Clostridium difficile. By prolonging patients hospitalization and worsening patients’ outcomes, the economic burden of nosocomial diseases is considerable.


HAI & Antimicrobial resistance

An endemic issue

As antimicrobial agents became widely used, resistant bacteria emerged and spread in the healthcare setting. As a result, antimicrobial agents became, in some cases, less effective and many resistant strains – such as Legionella, Staphylococcus aureus, Multiresistant Klebsiella, and Pseudomonas aeruginosa – became endemic in hospitals.


Detect the invisible!

Most HAI pathogens can survive on dry surfaces for extended periods and are challenging to eradicate by cleaning and disinfection. Our HAI-related products are the best option to detect these microorganisms, both in patients and on your hospital equipment.

Many of our collection and transport kits leverage our patented FLOQSwabs®: discover why it’s a plus!
