Abstract

A total of 1,001 consecutIve episodes of nosocomlal pneumonia in 901 patients was identified by routine surveillance at the University of Virginia Medical Center between 1979 and 1983 (8.6 episodes/1,000 admissions). When only initial episodes were examined, 890 patients comprised the study sample. The overall case fatality rate was 30%. Stepwlse logistic regression Indicated that time from admission to pneumonia (p = 0.0006), age (p
