Infection Control

Infection control is concerned with the prevention of nosocomial or clinic-related infection. It is often under recognized, is a part of the infrastructure of health care. Infection control and hospital epidemiology are related to public health practice, within a particular health-care delivery system. Anti-infective agents are usually antibiotics primarily antibacterial, antivirals, antifungals and antiprotozoal are available to eradicate infections. Infection control includes factors related to the spread of infections in the hospitals or healthcare centres include prevention through hand hygiene, cleaning/disinfection/sterilization, vaccination or surveillance and investigation of spread of infection in a health-care setting and management. Sterilization is a process to kill all microorganisms. Sterilizers are of heat, steam, or liquid chemicals. Disinfection uses liquid chemicals and at room temperature to kill microorganisms. Ultraviolet light can be used to disinfect the rooms of patients infected after discharge. Disinfection is less effective than sterilization because disinfection does not kill bacterial spores. Personal protective equipment (PPE) is some clothing or equipment to be worn by a staff for protection against hazard. The hazard in a healthcare setting is spilled blood, saliva, or other body fluids or aerosols that carry infectious materials such as Hepatitis C, HIV, or other blood borne or body fluid pathogen.
