"The Guidelines for Environmental Infection Control in Health-Care Facilities is a compilation of recommendations for the prevention and control of infectious diseases that are associated with healthcare environments. This document a) revises multiple sections from previous editions of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention [CDC] document titled Guideline for Handwashing and Hospital Environmental Control; b) incorporates discussions of air and water environmental concerns from CDC's Guideline for the Prevention of Nosocomial Pneumonia; c) consolidates relevant environmental infection-control measures from other CDC guidelines; and d) includes two topics not addressed in previous CDC guidelines -- infection-control concerns related to animals in health-care facilities and water quality in hemodialysis settings." -- p. 1.
