Contamination and Cross Contamination on Hospital Surfaces and Medical Equipment

Nosocomial infections are transmitted in hospitals across three major environmental ways - air, surface contact and water. Hands and gloves of health workers easily acquire pathogens after contact with contaminated surfaces in hospital and can transfer these organisms to patients and inanimate surfaces. The acquisition of nosocomial pathogens from one patient and the development of the infection depends on complex interaction between the environment, the pathogen and a susceptible host.
