Article type: Review article
These summaries form the second part of presentations made at a recent conference held at the Royal Society for Public Health in London, 16-17 May 2012, on the latest developments in combating waterborne hospital-acquired infections (nosocomial). The first part (Ann Agric Environ Med 2012; 19(3): 395-402) has focused more on the adopted strategies/approaches from the UK perspective, (some also from continental Europe), whereas the presented second part (sections 1-7 below), is dedicated more to practical solutions, and examples of features used in water systems that are or have been considered effective.
