During the mid-1800s, modern principles of hygiene, for instance, water treatment, sewage treatment, pest control, and personal cleanliness were not broadly experienced. Characteristically, health care facilities and medical personnel were inadequate. This led to lack of cleanliness. Previously, healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) also termed as nosocomial infections were widespread. For example, surgical patients often acquire infection (doctor's care), and a number of women who delivered a baby in hospitals died from puerperal fever, a nosocomial infection. Maintaining good sanitary conditions will reduce the incidence of HAI to a great extent.
