Nosocomial Infections

A hospital infection (HAI), also known as nosocomial infection, is an infection that is acquired in a hospital or other health care facility. To emphasize both hospitals and non-hospitals, it is sometimes referred to as an infection associated with health care (HAI or HCAI). Such an infection can be acquired at the hospital, nursing home, rehabilitation center, outpatient clinic or other clinical settings. The infection is spread to the sensitive patient in the clinical setting by various means. Care givers can spread infection, in addition to contaminated equipment, bed linen or air droplets. The infection may originate from the outside environment, from another infected patient, from personnel who may be infected or in some cases the source of infection cannot be determined. In some cases, the microorganism originates from the microbiota of the patient's skin, becoming opportunistic after surgery or other procedures that compromise the protective skin barrier. Although the patient has contracted the infection of his own skin, the infection is still considered nosocomial since it develops within the framework of health care.
