(1 votes, average: 5.00 out of 5)

Hospitals don’t have many outbreaks of viral hepatitis, owing to a strong culture of infection control. However, health care is moving increasingly to nonhospital settings like outpatient clinics and longterm care facilities where infection control is less established.

We talk with Nicola Thompson and Joseph Perz of the CDC about their paper detailing the causes of over 30 outbreaks in nonhospital healthcare settings over the past decade.
