Textbook of Microbiology for Nursing Students

by RR Rao

This book presents the most practicable fundamentals of microbiology to abridge the available information, stressing more importance on proper collection and transportation of microbiological specimens, adequate knowledge on disinfection and sterilization procedure, management of biological waste and last but not the least the role of “Hand Hygiene”. Detailed descriptions of morphological, cultural, biochemical characters of various microorganisms and their complex antigenic structures are simplified. Adequate importance has been placed on the clinical signs and symptoms of various infectious diseases for their early recognition, so that nursing staff are geared up to apply appropriate preventive measures to curtail the spread of the infection, either in the hospitals or in the community. This textbook has been divided into different sections without discontinuity, in order to make the student feel comfortable and develop interest to read and remember the contents of the respective sections. Detailed discussions on some topics have been avoided keeping in view of their rare occurrence in day-to-day practice. An attempt has been made to provide more illustrations to create a visual impact which creates a long lasting memory.
