    Proceedings of the Conference on Relation of the Environment to Hospital-Acquired Staphylococcal Disease
  • Description:
    The increasing and universal concern with the problem of infections related to antibiotic-resistant strains of Staphylococcus precipitated the first National Conference on Hospital - Acquired Staphylococcal Disease held in September 1958, under the joint sponsorship of the Public Health Service and the National Research Council. The proceedings (1) of t h a t conference indicated that the specific problem of hospital environmental sanitation merited further consideration. Since this problem involves the medical, engineering, architectural, biological, and chemical disciplines, the Public Health Service was encouraged to arrange a conference of interested representatives of those professions to examine the problem and to develop sound standards. Thus, a Conference on the Relation of the Environment to Hospital-Acquired Staphylococcal Disease was held in Atlanta on December 1-2, 1958. The nature of the meeting and of the problem dictated that the conference be conducted in an informal discussion manner to provide maximum interchange of information among the professions represented. This informal philosophy is reflected in the publication of these proceedings which have been compiled from taperecorded transcripts of the discussions which comprised the major portion of the conference.
