While a patient is admitted to the hospital for treatment of other conditions, nosocomial infections may be acquired from other patients, hospital staff, contaminated objects or solutions, or from the patient himself. Most common nosocomial infections are surgical wound infections. Do you think the public is aware of this and would it affect your decision to take a position in a hospital?
The knowledgable public is quite aware of this. That's why most patients tend to have home medication with their doctors.
