Ajánlás a fertözéses manifesztációk nosocomialis jellegének definiálására.

Translated title of the contribution: Recommendation on the definition of the nosocomial character of infectious manifestations

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The definitions describing when and which infectious diseases can be considered of nosocomial origin have been missing. The lack of such definitions make impossible the exact evaluation of their frequency and position taking for their prevention. This recommendation contains definitions based on the epidemiological characteristic of more than 50 nosocomial infectious diseases. Such an effort is urgently needed because without uniform definitions a successful surveillance of nosocomial infections remains unrealistic. The proposed definitions are subject for public and personal discussion.
