It has been estimated that in developed countries up to 10% of hospitalized patients develop infections every year. Not only is there a substantial cost to healthcare systems, but some healthcare associated infections (HCAIs) can be fatal. Since the majority of HCAIs are preventable, reducing HCIAs is now considered to be an integral part of patient safety and quality of care provided by all healthcare institutions worldwide.Unlike other books on infection control, the main strength of this book is to provide clear, up-to-date and practical guidance in infection control in an easy to read format which can act as a quick source of reference on all aspects of HCAIs for healthcare workers who are either directly or indirectly involved in prevention and control of HCAIs. Although the book's main audience is infection control practitioners such as doctors, nurses, public health physicians, it is also a valuablereference for environmental health officers, health educators, practice managers in GP surgeries, and health service managers.
