Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
The text has very good information. Covers material well. - Susan Erue, BSN, MS, PHDc; Iowa Weslyan College

I would recommend and use this text as a resource for any infection control nurse or infection control program. The depth is good-especially as resource material that could be used in sections for inservice material. - Marie Moran, RN, SDC

I think this book could be used in a variety of settings as a basic infection reference. The book was well written. It presented questions to think about in a way that made thinking about infection control more broad than just treating and avoiding infections. The human interest stories put a face on the impact of infectious disease in current time. - Pat Trapp, MS: Staff Educator
