Introduction:

Isolation is the procedure by which healthcare facilities separate infected patients from noninfected people and enhance the protective equipment used during contact with patients (eg, gloves, gowns, masks). Some studies report that approximately 12% of hospitalized patients are in isolation on any given day.
