Contaminated Medical Equipment & Infection Risks

Hospitals contain many germs and bacteria that can lead to serious, life-threatening infections. Infections in hospitals lead to more deaths than breast cancer and AIDS combined, and can lead to life-altering complications such as sepsis.

Contaminated instruments are also very dangerous for individuals undergoing a blood transfusion. Blood transfusion injuries are usually assessed as infectious or noninfectious risks.

These risks usually result from medical negligence on the part of doctors or other medical staff who do not clean their instruments properly or fail to discard contaminated instruments. Infectious risks include the possibility of contracting hepatitis, HIV, or a drug-resistant bacterial infection.
