Abstract

Health-care-associated infections are a common cause of increased morbidity, mortality, and cost of care in ICUs. Infection control and judicious antibiotic use are the mainstay of management of these patients. A systematic and multidisciplinary approach to infection control practices goes a long way in minimizing this problem.
