Infection control responsibility

Health care facilities should have access to specialists in infection control, epidemiology, and infectious diseases, including infection control physicians and infection control practitioners (usually nurses). In some countries, these professionals are specialized teams working for a hospital or group of health care facilities; they can do administratively part of another unit, (eg microbiology laboratory, medical administration or nursing, public health services). The optimal structure varies with the type, needs and resources of the institution. The hierarchical structure must, however, ensure the infection control team has authority to manage an effective infection control program. The infection control team or individual is responsible for day-to-day functions of infection control.
