PRINCIPLES OF PREVENTION AND CONTROL OF INFECTION IN HEALTH CARE SETTINGS

NCFE CACHE Level 2 Certificate

Every year, one in ten hospital patients develop a healthcare associated infection during their stay in a UK hospital.

Approximately 5,000 patients die as a direct result of one of these infections.

In most cases, these infections are difficult to treat and can complicate any other current or previous illnesses that a patient has, as well as causing distress for the individual and their family.
