Infection Control in Hospitals: A Worldwide Problem
Nosocomial (hospital-acquired) infections are significant causes of morbidity and mortality in every health care system, especially in developing countries. Common nosocomial infections include surgical site infections, bloodstream infections, pneumonia, and tuberculosis (TB).
Outbreaks of infections, especially in hospitals with limited resources, can affect numerous patients and staff, and controlling such outbreaks unnecessarily consumes scarce resources. Furthermore, worldwide increases in the resistance of infectious organisms to common antimicrobials multiply the difficulties and expense of treating hospital infections.
However, nosocomial infections can be prevented and controlled among staff and patients through careful and systematic attention to infection control guidelines and procedures.
