Special Feature

Preventing Infections in Multiple Healthcare Settings

Health care-associated infections are largely preventable events that can cause significant illness—and even death—particularly in vulnerable elderly patients. Nurses are responsible for most direct patient care in health care settings, so they are closely involved with infection control and prevention. Research led by nurse scientists on infection control has helped provide a foundation of evidence and guided best practices in multiple clinical settings.
