DENVER (AP) – A new report says Colorado hospitals are under-reporting a serious type of infection patients get in their facilities by a third.

Colorado Public Radio says Colorado’s health department compiled the report after getting a federal grant to audit the hospitals infection numbers.

State law requires Colorado hospitals to report how many of their patients get infections from nine different procedures.
