Discusses how staffing patterns and nurses' working conditions are risk factors for healthcare-associated infections as well as occupational injuries and infections. Highlights staffing shortages, especially of nurses, as one of the major factors expected to constrain hospitals' ability to deal with future outbreaks of emerging infections. Argues that understanding and improving nurses' working conditions can potentially decrease the incidence of many infectious diseases.
