nosocomial infections, several aspects are important:
· Mortality and morbidity in patients
· Prolongation of hospitalization
· Increased costs due to prolongation of stay, diagnosis, Drmanyrah transmission of microorganisms in hospitals
in hospital microorganisms can be transmitted in many ways they are assembled (5), and sometimes a
germs can be transmitted in several ways. Transmission of microorganisms in hospitals include:
1) transmitted by contact (Contact): Contact the commonest and most important route of transmission of infection
hospital is considered to be divided into three subgroups:
· Direct contact of the body and physical transfer of microorganisms between a susceptible host and a
infection or colonization with bacteria
· Bashy’ susceptible host infected through indirect contact (device, needles, bandages, contaminated gloves)
· Drop (Droplet) produced by a person during sneezing, coughing and talking during suction
or bronchoscopy and exposure of the conjunctiva, nasal mucosa Yadhan < / span>
2) transport by air (Airborne)
3) transmitted by an infected joint, such as food, water, medicines and equipment contaminated
4) transmitted by vectors such as mosquitoes, flies, and mice that have little importance in the transmission of nosocomial infections

· Contact with patients or equipment: staphylococcus bacteria, Enterobacteriaceae family,
viral infections such as rotavirus, and the fungus Candida.

· Vulnerability to viral infections
· Mucocutaneous barrier dysfunction following trauma, burns, surgery, endoscopy, catheters affluent,

one of the best sources of information on nosocomial bacterial model system
National Nosocomial Infection Surveillance system (NNISS system) is. In a study from 1990 to 1994
