    Abstract

    In recent years, hospital acquired infections (HAIs) have become a major issue of concern in the European health care system. The most common routes of transmission of HAIs are either by airborne routes or by direct contact. Direct contact can be mediated through many textile items including: bedding, clothing, wound dressings and curtains. Antimicrobial textiles could be used widely in health care environments in order to reduce the spread of HAIs. Please note this is an abstract from a poster presentation at the 2nd International Conference on Prevention and Infection Control (ICPIC 2013).
