Prevention and Control of Infections in the Home.

Increasing concern exists that antimicrobial-resistant microorganisms can be acquired in the community or that they can be introduced into the community from healthcare facilities. Antimicrobial resistance may also evolve or be acquired in the community and be introduced into a healthcare facility from the community, where the infection can spread widely.
