Surveillance of global nosocomial infection and process indicators 2. Surveillance of bacteraemic infection 3. Surveillance of surgical infection 4. Surveillance of nosocomial infection in ICUs 5. Surveillance of organisms with specific antibiotic resistance problems 6. Standardised monitoring of hospital antimicrobial consumption 7. Surveillance of infections at social health centres 8. Surveillance of infections in paediatric and neonatal units 9. Surveillance of hand hygiene at Catalan hospitals
