Notes
1 Infection rate per 10,000 occupied bed days.

Karratha Health Campus opened on 20 September 2018 and at the same time Nickol Bay Hospital closed.

It is expected that large hospitals will have more HA-SABSI, as these hospitals treat patients at higher risk of infection, who have more invasive devices and have complex procedures performed.
