Abstract

Introduction: The prevalence of hospital-acquired or healthcare-associated infections (HAI) varies from country to country even between different units of the same hospital. By the help of prevalence studies, HAI rates can be demonstrated in a wider perspective and, based on these data; infection control measures may be reevaluated. In this study, we investigated the HAI prevalence in hospitalized patients on 23 December 2013 at our tertiary-care educational hospital.
