Abstract

Health care–acquired infections present a tremendous challenge to the care of hospitalized patients. Unfortunately, the risk of acquiring a health care–associated infection (HAI) is rising. The vast majority of HAI are of four types: urinary tract infections, surgical site infections, bloodstream infections, and pneumonia. This chapter aims to provide current data and strategies relating to the prevention of HAIs among hospitalized patients.
