The infections that get spread from one patient to another due to contaminated hands, unwashed equipment, and disease transmitted in the air like Tuberculosis, Aspergillus etc is called Hospital Acquired Infection rate (HAI). The below section of this page shows you the hospital acquired infection rates formula which allows you to calculate the infection rate by dividing the total number of hospital infections with the total number of hospital deaths including deaths.

Hospital Infection Rate = (i / d)×100

Where,

i = Total Number of Hospital Infections

d = Total Number of Discharges (Including Deaths)

The above hospital acquired infection rates formula will be a highly beneficial tool for the hospitals to calculate their hospital's infection rate and take suitable measures.
