Katz MJ, Gurses AP. Infection control and hospital epidemiology. 2019;40:95-99.

Health care‚Äďassociated infections are a persistent challenge in all care environments. This commentary explores conditions in long-term care settings that enable infections to spread. The authors recommend applying a human factors engineering model in these settings to reduce risks of infections.
