Update on infection control challenges in special pediatric populations

Balkhy, Hanan H
Published in Current Opinion in Infectious Diseases. 2014, vol. 27, no. 4, p. 370-378
Abstract Compared with adults, neonatal and pediatric populations are especially vulnerable patients who have specific diagnostic and therapeutic differences; therefore, the standard infection control practices designed for adults are sometimes not effective or need modifications to work. This review focuses on the recent literature addressing the challenges and successes in preventing healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) in children.
