Infection Control and Hospital Epidemiology

Infection control is the discipline concerned with preventing nosocomial or healthcare-associated with infection, a practical (rather than academic) sub-discipline of epidemiology. It is a vital, though often under recognized and under supported part of the organization of health care. Infection control and hospital epidemiology are like public health practice, practiced within the boundaries of a particular health-care delivery system rather than directed at the entire society. Anti-infective agents include antibiotics, antibacterial, antifungals, antivirals and antiprotozoal. These are promptly accessible to infections. Infection control and Hospital epidemiology are related to the general public health practice. Infection management contains elements relevant to the spreading of infections; either within the hospitals or alternative aid centres, as well as difficulty via hand hygiene, cleansing or disinfection or sanitization, vaccines or surveillance and probe of infections in a health-care domain. Sterilization kills all microorganisms. It is on this basis that the common title being adopted among health care is “prevention and control”.
