Too many people die or become infected when seeking medical treatment in hospitals and other health care facilities in India. Typically, these healthcare-associated infections are a result of unhygienic practices at medical facilities, including ambulatory surgical centres, hospice centres and nursing homes. More often than not, these infections could easily be prevented. Currently, India does not have a national registry to record and track these hospital-based infections, which means there is little way to know actual burden of infections in hospitals.
