Abstract

The role of the hospital administrator regarding the implementation and maintenance of programs for the prevention and control of nosocomial infections in U.S. hospitals is discussed. Data obtained in the Study on the Efficacy of Nosocomial Infection Control provide the basis for describing the backgrounds, demographic characteristics, functions, and potential functions of this official as s/he interacts with members of the infection control committee and other hospital staff. The infection control program of a hospital must have the support of the hospital administrator to be effective.
