Are you looking for ways to stem the spread of infection in healthcare environments?
One of the leading causes of death among patients in health care settings is nosocomial infections. Also known as a hospital-acquired infection, nosocomial infection tends to thrive in a hospital environment, and can be aggravated by the reduced resistance of individual patients. Infection control is a necessary component of safe and good quality patient care and is therefore essential for the well-being of the patients and the staff. Nurses have a major role to play in preventing and controlling nosocomial infections.
It is essential for the nurses and other health professionals to be up-to-date with the infection control practices in order to provide the client with high quality nursing care.
