HAI and elective surgery
July 16, 2010 1:27 AM Subscribe
I am considering elective (plastic reconstructive) surgery and I am concerned about hospital acquired infection (HAI).
One possibility is to have the surgery in Holland or Denmark where, as I understand it, the rates for HAI's is low compared to elsewhere.
How do hospitals in these countries compare with those in the U.S. with respect to HAI and prices for services?

Have you had surgery in Holland or Denmark? What was your experience?
Are you a doctor with knowledge re HAI's in the U.S. and Europe? What do you think?
I have tried to find this info on the net with only limited success.
