Women are less likely than men to contract infections at hospitals, possibly because of differences between the sexes in skin bacteria, a new study suggests.
In the study, 10 in 1,000 women developed bloodstream infections during their stay at health care facilities, compared with a rate of 16 in 1,000 for men.
Similarly, for surgical site infections, in which an incision gets infected, women had a rate of 44 in 10,000, while the infection rate for men was 74 per 10,000.
