9780521687010: Manual of Infection Control Procedures

The prevention of infection in the health care setting remains a key goal for all health care personnel. All health care establishments also have a need to continually improve the quality of care they provide and ensure a safe working environment. Health care-associated infections lengthen patients' hospital stays and increase both morbidity and mortality. In addition, diagnosing and treating these infections is a costly process and places intense pressure on limited health care resources. The new, updated and significantly expanded edition of the Manual of Infection Control Procedures provides a comprehensive overview of the main aspects of infection control, and gives practical, evidence-based recommendations and easy-to-follow advice on strategies to prevent infection in all health care facilities.
