Abstract

Infection control in the long-term-care facility has expanded substantially since "Topics in Long-Term Care" debuted in this journal in 1989. This section has been on hiatus, but now, after a 4-year lag, resumes its exploration of these topics. In the first article, endemic and epidemic infections in long-term care are discussed and compared to nosocomial infections in the hospital. The basic elements of an infection control program in this setting, as well as the recent advances in the field, are reviewed.
