Nosocomial Infection
Nosocomial infections are infections which are a result of treatment in a hospital or a healthcare service unit, but secondary to the patient's original condition. Infections are considered nosocomial if they first appear 48 hours or more after hospital admission or within 30 days after discharge. Nosocomial infections are even more alarming in the 21st century. The main reason are the followings:

  • Hospitals house large numbers of people who are sick and whose immune systems are often in a weakened state.
  • Increased use of outpatient treatment means that people who are in the hospital are sicker on average.
  • Medical staff move from patient to patient, providing a way for pathogens to spread.
