    The given definition describes the process of infection, which involves the transmission of a pathogenic microorganism to a host, followed by its invasion and multiplication in the host's body. This can occur with or without resulting symptoms of disease.

    Hand Hygiene observations should not be performed in extreme situations

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Performing hand hygiene observations in extreme situations may not be feasible or practical. Extreme situations could refer to emergencies, disasters, or situations where the focus is on immediate response rather than monitoring hand hygiene practices. In such situations, resources and attention may be directed towards more urgent matters, making it difficult to conduct observations effectively. Additionally, extreme situations may involve unique circumstances or conditions that may not accurately reflect normal hand hygiene practices. Therefore, it is reasonable to conclude that hand hygiene observations should not be performed in extreme situations.
