Interesting article from CNN today. Obviously this data pertains to all hospital acquired infections and it does not really have much of a breakdown by specialty or infection type (except for the mention of C. diff); but it's a good read regardless.
Of promising note is that infection rates are dropping. I'm sure they'll drop even nore once doctors and facilities start getting punished for preventable complications by not getting paid (I remember reading somewhere that this is in the works).
