Healthcare- associated infections are one of the great challenges in medical centers, that the most effective and low-cost method to reduce them is observation of hand hygiene by the healthcare providers.
According to the researchers, increased length of hospital stay, more antibiotic resistant bacteria, increased medical costs and even high rates of mortality could be recounted as the consequences of nosocomial infections.
