Abstract

This study identifies factors associated with a high prevalence of healthcare-associated infection (HAI) in the Scottish inpatient population, on the basis of the Scotland National HAI Prevalence Survey data set. The multivariate models developed can be used to predict HAI prevalence in specific patient groups to help with planning and policy in infection control.
