Description:

Thoroughly revised and updated for its Third Edition, this highly acclaimed volume is the most comprehensive reference on hospital epidemiology and infection control. In 115 chapters written by over 150 leading 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.
