Take the hospital infections quiz

June 14, 2011

HAMILTON, OH — Every year, thousands of people around the world enter hospitals because they are sick; but, instead of getting better, many get sicker, according to a press release.

However, this is not necessarily because dedicated nurses and staff were not able to help them; in many cases, it is just the opposite, the release stated.

According to the release, patients are most often cured of the disease that brought them into the hospital, but the problem is they have acquired a new infection, called a nosocomial disease, from staying in the hospital.

Because proper cleaning can help minimize nosocomial diseases and help keep people healthy, Kaivac Inc., developers of the No-Touch Cleaning system, have developed a quiz to learn more about this serious problem, the release noted.
