HAIs cost individual patients roughly $1,100 per admission. 9.4% of total inpatient costs are HAI-related. More than 69% of HAIs affect people with Medicare or Medicaid. If an HAI is contracted, the length of hospital stay increases by 17.6 days, bringing the average stay from five days to 22 days.
