Summary A comprehensive reference on hospital epidemiology and infection control. In 115 chapters written by over 150 experts, the book examines every type of hospital-acquired (nosocomial) infection and addresses every issue relating to surveillance, prevention, and control of these infections in patients and in healthcare workers. This edition features two brand-new sections: a six-chapter section on bioterrorism and a five-chapter section on healthcare quality improvement. Other new chapters cover using the personal computer for healthcare epidemiology; infections associated with xenotransplantation; nosocomial bacteremia; and filamentous fungi
