Bennett & Brachman's Hospital Infections

Portada
John V. Bennett, William Robert Jarvis, Philip S. Brachman
Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 2007 - 832 páginas

The most influential reference in the field for nearly thirty years, Bennett and Brachman's Hospital Infections is in its thoroughly updated Fifth Edition. Written by internationally recognized experts—many affiliated with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention—the book is the most comprehensive, up-to-date, authoritative guide to the recognition, management, prevention, and control of infections in all types of healthcare facilities.

More than half of this edition's chapters have new authors who are current experts in the field. Important new chapters cover patient safety, public reporting, controlling antimicrobial-resistant pathogens (especially MRSA and VRE), fungi, and healthcare-associated infections caused by newer treatments such as invasive cardiology. This edition has a new two-color design.
