Maybe 48000/yr: Hospital-acquired (nosocomial) infections tend to be antibiotic-resistant. It is is a mistake to think that all are from failed infection control or poor care. Bacterial infection is the final, inevitable event in the course of most chronic, progressive illness, and happens in many catastrophic illnesses, and the "super-bugs" in hospitals pose little threat to those who work there.
