Infection control professionals are busy people who are expected to come up with the right answers at a moment's notice. Whether it is a simple question concerning the most recent Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) definition of a surgical site infection, a complex debate concerning reprocessing of endoscopes, or even the infection control recommendations for a possible case of Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease, the answer can be found in Saunders' Infection Control Reference Service.
