What is a nosocomial infection?
Nosocomial infection otherwise referred to as hospital-acquired infection, is acquired by the patients during a hospital stay of a minimum of 48 hours. Hence, people with weaker immunity are more prone to this infection.
What are the hotspots of nosocomial infection?
In hospitals, high-touch areas such as ICU areas, ventilators, patient’s bed, bedside tables, door handles, nursing counters, walls, and windows are more prone to nosocomial infections. Both porous (like curtains) and nonporous surfaces (medical instruments) are great reservoirs for nosocomial microbes.
Which microbes cause nosocomial infection?
The microbes responsible for nosocomial infection include Escherichia coli, Klebsiella sp., Proteus sp., Pseudomonas sp., Staphylococcus aureus, Bacillus sp., Acinetobacter sp., Clostridium sp., Methicillin-resistant S. aureus (MRSA), and Vancomycin-resistant enterococci (VRE).

Viruses such as Hepatitis B and C, rotavirus, herpes simplex virus, and fungi such as Cryptococcus neoformans, Aspergillus sp. and Candida albicans come under this genre. All these microbes survive on these objects for a prolonged duration.
