A bundled, evidence-based approach to improving hospital cleaning and disinfection is a cost-effective intervention for reducing HAIs

Evaluation of the cost-effectiveness of an environmental cleaning bundle aiming at a reduction of HAI. It was shown that - compared to existing cleaning practices in the hospital - the chance of the bundle to be cost-effective was 86 %. The net monetary benefit of the cleaning bundle was calculated to be AUD $1.02 million.
