Significant differences was observed between the numbers of patients with cross infections in various wards (P<.001). The average hospital stay was 21. 19 days for the intensive care unit and significant differences was also observed between patients with cross infections with various length of hospital stay (P<.05), and was between male and female patients with cross infections number in various hospital wards (P<.001).
