Hospital-acquired or hospital-associated infections (HAI) or nosocomial infections are contracted from the environment or staff of a healthcare facility. It can also spread in the hospital environment, nursing home environment, rehabilitation facility, clinic, or other clinical settings. HAIs are caused by viral, bacterial, and fungal pathogens; the most common types are bloodstream infection (BSI), pneumonia (e.g., ventilator-associated pneumonia [VAP]), urinary tract infection (UTI), and surgical site infection (SSI). While antibiotic drugs to treat diseases caused by gram-positive MRSA are available, few effective drugs are available for Acinetobacter bacteria that are evolving and becoming immune to existing antibiotics. The major types of hospital infections prevalent worldwide are hospital-acquired pneumonia, urinary tract infections and surgical site infections. Hospital infections are mainly treated with antimicrobial drugs that help patients suffering from bacterial, viral or other microbial infections.
