Abstract

Residents of long-term care facilities average at least one serious infection per year. This discussion will address why nosocomial infections develop and highlight the most common types of infection in long-term care settings. Prevention and treatment of infections in this highly susceptible population will also be covered, with a focus on infection-control programs for long-term care facilities.
