Fifty Years of Infection Control and Healthcare Design

Michael Gardam and Patti Cochrane


The examination of 1962 perspectives on healthcare provided by Ross Graham and Shannon Sibbald in their article "Looking Back 50 Years in Hospital Administration" provides an opportunity to see not only what happened 50 years ago, but how modern attitudes and concerns both match and differ from those of the past. Focusing on infection prevention and hospital design, this commentary explores the changes in procedure, policy and attitudes since 1962, and how they are affecting healthcare today.
