9780199698356: Manual of Infection Prevention and Control

It has been estimated that in developed countries up to 10% of hospitalized patients develop infections every year. Not only is there a substantial cost to healthcare systems, but some healthcare associated infections (HCIAs) can be fatal. Since the majority of HCIAs are preventable, reducing HCIAs is now considered to be an integral part of patient safety and quality of care provided by all healthcare institutions worldwide.

Unlike other books on infection control, the main strength of this book is to provide clear, up-to-date and practical guidance in infection control in an easy to read format which can act as a quick source of reference on all aspects of HCIA for healthcare workers who are either directly or indirectly involved in prevention and control of HCIAs. Although the book's main audience is infection control practitioners such as doctors, nurses, public health physicians, it is also a valuable reference for environmental health officers, health educators, practice managers in GP surgeries, and health service managers.

About the Author:

Nizam Damani is Clinical Director of Infection Prevention and Control, Craigavon Area Hospital, Portadown, Co. Armagh, and Honorary Clinical Lecturer, Department of Medical Microbiology, Queens University, Belfast, UK.

Review:

The lay-out of the book is very convenient: text divided with clear subtitles in two categories, easy readable tables and clearly highlighted boxes. In a busy ward with increasingly expensive medicines, and a big shortage of staff all over the world, many things in patient care seem more important to clinicians than infection control, especially in developing countries. This book with very specific guidance for most situations known today in infection prevention and control will be of enormous help in this work and reading it is most important for infection control personnel. * International Journal of Infection Control *
