||A questionnaire survey of 19 hospital medical staff and 56 nursing staff revealed that nurses were significantly more familiar with all written policies and procedures of infection control than were physicians. They were also more likely to seek advice in situations where there were no written guidelines. Many hospital staff were uncertain about the practical details of written policies and procedures. Better ways to educate and motivate staff to comply with infection control measures are required.
