Introduction

I. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that in the United States, there are approximately 1.7 million nosocomial infections per year which cause or contribute to 99,000 deaths per year. In addition to the morbidity and mortality, these complications cost billions of dollars annually.
