The present study assessed the risk factors associated with hospital-acquired infection (HAI) in a large Chinese cancer hospital. A total of 192,317 cancer inpatients were included in this study. Multivariate analysis of the associated risk factors indicated that older age, divorced and widowed status, surgical intervention, low rank surgical incision, and prolonged hospital stay were independent risk factors for HAIs in the cancer hospital.
