CDC Director Dr. Tom Frieden talks about the one million patients who will get an infection each year in the course of receiving medical care. These infections not only cause preventable illness and death, but they also cost the healthcare system billions of dollars. The good news is that by utilizing CDC prevention guidelines, healthcare facilities can protect patients and save lives.
