889 Possible Causes for Nosocomial Infection

  • Pseudomembranous Colitis

    Abstract Clostridium difficile infection (CDI) is one of the most prevalent nosocomial infections.[doi.org]

  • Clostridium Difficile

    Abstract Clostridium difficile infection (CDI) represents one of the most serious nosocomial infections that have grown dramatically over the past decade.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] KEYWORDS: hepatitis and other GI infections; nosocomial infections[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Through the Canadian Nosocomial Infection Surveillance Program, the Agency recently completed a six-month surveillance study on C. difficile in teaching hospitals across the[healthycanadians.gc.ca]

  • Nosocomial Pneumonia

    Abstract Nosocomial pneumonia (NP; encompassing hospital-acquired, health care-associated and ventilator-associated pneumonia) is one of the most common nosocomial infections[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] INTRODUCTION: Hospital-acquired pneumonia (HAP) is one of the leading nosocomial infections worldwide and is associated with an elevated morbidity and mortality and increased[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] BACKGROUND: Acinetobacter baumannii has been reported increasingly as a significant causative organism of various nosocomial infections, including hospital-acquired pneumonia[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Pseudomonas Pneumonia

    Pseudomonas rarely causes infection in healthy individuals but it is a major cause of hospital acquired (nosocomial) infections.[medicinenet.com] .: Risk factors for multidrugresistant Pseudomonas aeruginosa nosocomial infection.[bdj.co.jp] Nicolas-Chanoin The prevalence of nosocomial infection in intensive care units in Europe. results of the european prevalence of infection in intensive care (EPIC) study JAMA[elsevier.es]

  • Puerperal Mastitis

    Her research and clinical interests include surgery-related infections and multidrug-resistant, nosocomial pathogens. Top Barbosa-Cesnik C, Schwartz K, Foxman B.[wwwnc.cdc.gov]

  • Enterococcus

    BACKGROUND: Nowadays, the bacterial contamination in the hospital environment is of particular concern because the hospital-acquired infections (HAIs), also known as nosocomial[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] infection.[mgc.ac.cn] KEYWORDS: Brazil; Intra and interhospital spread; Nosocomial infection; VRE; Vancomycin-resistant enterococci[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Surgical Wound Infection

    CONCLUSION: It is our belief that the validity of surgical wound infections will be improved by adoption of National Nosocomial Infection Surveillance (NNIS) definitions,[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The surgical wound infection rates of the National Nosocomial Infection Surveillance system may not be appropriate standards for specialized units with a high incidence of[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] lower rates of nosocomial infection than those without such programs.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Staphylococcus Aureus Infection

    […] of nosocomial infections [21].[scielo.br] Robert Gaynes for providing unpublished data from the National Nosocomial Infections Surveillance system; and to Dr.[nejm.org] Discussion The epidemiology of nosocomial infections by MSSA and MRSA presents several different aspects.[scielo.br]

  • Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus Aureus Infection

    When stratified by the National Nosocomial Infection Surveillance risk index, SSI rates were 0.86% (8/926), 1.30% (5/384), and 7.69% (1/13) in risk categories 0, 1, and 2,[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] National Nosocomial Infections Surveillance System.[psnet.ahrq.gov] CONCLUSIONS: We developed a simple and comprehensive scoring system for diagnosis of nosocomial MRSA infections; this system is applicable in a wide variety of situations.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Puerperal Infection

    This discovery began a transformation in health care - one that continues today, as nosocomial infections continue to plague patients and hospitals.[sharinginhealth.ca] Nosocomial infections are acquired in hospitals or other health facilities and may come from the hospital environment or from other patients.[omicsonline.org] The sources of infection are typically divided into three groups: nosocomial (organisms acquired within the hospital or due to the patient’s own flora) exogenous (contamination[sharinginhealth.ca]
