Basic Infection Control for Health Care Providers, Second Edition, is a clear and concise guide to preventing occupational exposure hazards and communicable and infectious diseases. This book includes coverage on how to safely protect oneself from infectious agents and what do in case of infectious exposure. Discussions of the disease process and legal issues surrounding exposure and infectious diseases provide context for the material. The blend of fundamental infection control content and reference resources makes this tool perfect for use in an instructional setting or as a reference for practicing health care providers.

  • Preface.

    • Alerts call attention to important information health professionals should be aware of
    • Case Study and Questions for Discussion features are designed to encourage critical thinking
    • Answers to the Questions for Discussions are found at the back of the book, conveniently allowing you to assess comprehension of the concepts
    • Infectious Disease Reference, now found in an easily identifiable Appendix, includes data on over 45 diseases
    • Newsmaker relates book content to real-life events by depicting notable occasions when infectious diseases have made the news
    • Under the Microscope offers you information and suggestions for delving deeper into the topics presented
  • 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.
