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 health care-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 practical guidance in infection control in a format which can act as a quick source of reference on all aspects of HCAIs.

Keywords: hospitalized patients; infection; healthcare systems; cost; healthcare associated infections; patient safety; quality of care; infection control
