  19. 19. 1) SOURCE• Patient• Staff• environment
  20. 20. 2) Routes of spreada) Direct contactb) Droplet infectionc) Air borne particled) Release of hospital dust into the aire) Through various hospital procedure
  21. 21. a) Directcontact
  22. 22. b) Droplet infection
  23. 23. c) Air borne particle
  24. 24. d) Releaseof hospital dust into the air
  25. 25. e) Through various hospital procedure like• catheterization• Intravenous procedure• dressing• infected cat gut• sputum cups• bed pans• urinals etc.
  26. 26. 3) RECIPIENTSa) Patient especially severely ill & under corticosteroid therapyb) Cross infection is greater in• Intensive care unit• Urological ward• Geriatric ward• Special baby care unit
  28. 28. 1) Isolation of infectious patient

  42. 42. Guideline to evaluate the floor cleaning procedure Based on rodac plate count• 0-25 bacteria/cubic foot- good floor cleaning procedure• 26-50 bacteria/cubic foot- satisfactory• More than 50 bacteria/cubic foot- not satisfactory
