Forty-nine papers, 3 panels, and summary discussions, concerned with hospital-acquired infections in the United States, Canada, Denmark, Great Britain, Israel, and Yugoslavia; emphasis is on American experience. The papers are grouped by topics: microbial factors, emerging pathogens, host susceptibility, sources of nosocomial infections, air-control techniques, control of microbial contamination, systems for control, and legal aspects.
