Infection control in health care facilities deals largely with protecting building occupants from patients with communicable infectious diseases. Infections, which may result from activities and procedures taking place within the facility, have become a cause for great concern. Infection that is acquired during the course of health care is known as a nosocomial, or hospital acquired, infection.
