increasing day by day. Healthcare infections are basically the infection that is caused to the
patient at the place that they visit to get themselves treated.

The scientific reason for such infection is because of all the bacteria’s and germs that can be
found floating around at the place where they are getting treated. Every year thousands of
patients get infected by getting in contact with such germs. Out of which mostly all are treated
back to their health, while some ill fated patience face the worst consequences of death. Some
thinks that hospital is the only place where such infections are acquired, which is not correct.
There are other health centres where infections are likely to be caught like surgery centre,
rehabilitation centre, n dialysis centre etc.

doctor, needle of an injection etc
