it is important to understand how diseases are transmitted and the possibility of nosocomial (hospital-acquired) infection. describe one mode of transmission and then discuss at least one effective mechanism that can be used in the hospital setting to reduce that risk. bring in additional routes in which the disease mentioned by the initial posting or other mechanisms that a hospital could employ to minimize the risk. For instance, the average desk harbors around 400 times more bacteria than the average toilet seat (makes you think about where you want to set your water bottle!)
