Abstract

The prevention of nosocomial infections is an important aspect of patient care, particularly in high-risk areas such as intensive care units (ICUs). Local hospital leadership needs to develop easily defined infection-control policies that are evidence-based. These infection-control policies also require the presence of a dedicated group of infection-control practitioners to provide education, collect surveillance data, and oversee the implementation of the local infection-control plan.
