Abstract

The past decade in infection control has seen remarkable growth of both practitioners and the basic infection control program. Technical advances led to more sophisticated data collection, analysis, and strategies. Health care is being streamlined to be highly effective and efficient. It is easy to become enchanted with new, exciting, and high-tech aspects of disease prevention and control, but we must all remember that the basics of a good program from 10 years ago are still applicable today.
