Nosocomial Infections and Public Health Microbiology

Nosocomial Infections and Public Health Microbiology

Nosocomial infections, often known as healthcare-associated infections (HAI), are illnesses acquired while receiving medical treatment that were not present at the time of admission. In individuals receiving medical care, nosocomial infections, often known as healthcare-associated illnesses, can arise. These diseases can be seen in both developed and underdeveloped countries around the world. In developed countries, nosocomial infections account for 7% of all infections, but in impoverished ones, they account for 10%. Because these infections arise while in the hospital, they result in a longer stay, disability, and economic strain. Bacteria, viruses, and fungal parasites are examples of nosocomial pathogens. According to WHO estimates, these infections affect around 15% of all hospitalised patients.
Human, animal, food, water, and environmental microbiology are all areas of public health microbiology, with an emphasis on human health and disease. Microbiology is an important tool in the arsenal of public health professionals when it comes to controlling and preventing infectious diseases. It encompasses a variety of approaches, ranging from microbial culture-based systems to novel and sophisticated mass spectrometry and ‘molecular'-based assays, all of which allow for precise and quick detection and speciation of organisms.
