    Author(s): Nimra Arshad* and Saba Kabir

    Studies of hospital-acquired infections (HAIs) aimed to determine the etiology and microbiology of predominant pathogens and their antimicrobial susceptibility. The evaluation of the percentage of infections in different medical areas and the severity of infection is determined. Based on medical and biological criteria of hospitals involvement of different microorganisms in catheters, bloodstream, prosthetic devices, and in medical interventions lead to the generation of diseases. Ventilator- associated pneumonia (VAP), urinary tract infections (UTI), respiratory tract infections (RTI), and surgical site infections (SSI) are common. It provides an appropriate discussion on the importance of nosocomial infections and their antibiotic resistance. The adverse effects on patient safety and emergence of complications by multidrug-resistant microorganisms are evaluated and the Lim.. View More»
