This study contains evidence-based recommendations for the prevention of hospital acquired infections. Hospital acquired infections are a major cause of mortality and morbidity and provide challenge to clinicians. Measures of infection control included identifying patients at risk of nosocomial infections. Antiseptics and disinfectants are used extensively in hospitals and other health care settings for a variety of topical and hard-surface applications. In particular, they are an essential part of infection control practices and aid in the prevention of nosocomial infection. This study investigated the nosocomial infection via isolation and identification of bacterial pathogens, the effect of detergents against isolated bacteria, and describes the histopathological tissue changes induced by the isolated bacteria in vivo study. Some bacteria resistant to disinfectants were prevalent and these bacteria had different effects on the human, Different pathological changes were seen experimentally by inoculation of these bacteria in mice.
