A Critical Study of Common Hospital-Acquired Infections and Their Control Strategies
Abstract: Hospitals, in general, are the places where the patients are admitted for a period of time when ill. This helps the doctors to have their patients under constant observations with essential follow ups and treatments. However, it is a paradox, that the hospitals considered as the curing and treatment centers for patients, often become the places of catching new infections. This owes to the fact that the hospital environment becomes contaminated with many pathogenic micro-organisms. Other reason is that the patients with weak immunity become more susceptible to the infections. These new infections, which patients acquire as a result of healthcare interventions to treat other conditions are called Hospital or Healthcare-Acquired Infections (HAI). The present article reviews on the critical study of hospital-acquired infections, causative microbial agents and their control strategies.
