  • Nosocomial or hospital-acquired infections are systematically increasing in all countries
  • In Europe, about 91,000 patients die as a result of nosocomial infections - together with the USA, there are about 250,000 deaths registered each year
  • The treatment costs are enormous and exceed USD 30 billion every year. In many cases entire clinics have to be closed
  • Health insurance companies are increasingly reluctant to cover these costs, so that hospitals have to bear these costs
