Moreover, nosocomial infections are HAI that are acquired while receiving treatment during the hospital stay, which first appears within 48 hours or more after hospital admission or within 30 days post discharge. Patients are generally affected by nosocomial infections in long-term care facilities, hospitals, ambulatory settings, and post-discharge from the hospital. Thus, an increasing incidence of hospital-acquired infections is said to propel the market growth during the projected period.
