Abstract: 

Health care associated infections (HCAI), lead to significant morbidity and mortality in hospitalized patients. It has been estimated that about 1.5 million patients incur HCAI at any time throughout the world. In industrialized countries up to 15% of patients admitted to the hospitals and up to 37% of those admitted to the intensive care units (ICUs) may contract HCAI, these figures are much higher in developing countries. The risk of infections associated with various devices and procedures, like central venous lines, mechanical ventilations, and urinary catheters rises sharply in the ICU setting (1).
