Hospital Acquired Infections (HAIs) pose a significant health problem to patients, practitioners, workers and health services as a whole. The number of deaths caused by HAIs is on the increase in many countries around the world, and hospitals are struggling to maintain sufficiently high standards of hygiene and cleanliness, which would reduce the constant threat of HAIs. On average, worldwide, studies have revealed an average of 9% of hospitalised patients have HAI. The authors of this book, an ICU specialist and a microbiologist, provide the latest information and guidance on infection control and prevention to those working at all levels of the healthcare system, including hospital, community health centres, nursing homes, clinics and laboratories. They discuss the current circumstances: the causes of HAIs, the means for their prevention, control and monitoring and they suggest clinical practice guidelines that will be helpful for all levels of healthcare staff. This book will be an invaluable asset and resource for anyone involved in health care, but especially for hospital, clinic and health care managers and management teams. Contents: 1.
