Among UTIs acquired in the hospital, approximately 75% are associated with a urinary catheter
Each year, more than 13,000 deaths are associated with UTIs
Urinary tract infections (UTIs) are tied with pneumonia as the second most common type of healthcare-associated infection, and account for more than 15% of infections reported by acute care hospitals.
