Introduction: Nosocomial infections are a widespread problem around the world. The Center for Disease Control (CDC) estimates that nosocomial infections affect around 1.7 million patients per year, and cause 99.000 deaths. According to CDC, 32% of all healthcare acquired infections are urinary tract infections, 22% are surgical site infections, 15% are pneumonia and 14% are bloodstream infections. Nowadays, only 1/3 of nosocomial infections can be prevented with the Infection Control Programs. The other 2/3 cannot be prevented with the programs used nowadays. In USA, 31 billion of dollars are spent in the treatment of nosocomial infections per year.

Another goal is to make evident the possible economy to healthcare when using these techniques and tools in the treatment of nosocomial infections.

Findings: When comprehending the patient in a broader view, considering the energy imbalances of Yin, Yang, Qi, Blood and Heat retention and also, the energy pattern in the chakras’ energy centers of our populations nowadays, it is possible to control and prevent better more nosocomial infections, reducing the costs for the healthcare’s.
Conclusion: The 2/3 of not controlled nosocomial infections cannot be prevented because of the reasoning used Western medicine, considering only what we can see by the naked eyes as scientific and the part of the human being that is formed by energy, is not study nowadays but it is this part that is affecting the whole population in the globe, leading to increasing risks for nosocomial infection.
