LACERDA, Rúbia Aparecida. Brazilian scientific production on nosocomial infection and nursing contribution: past, presente and perspectives. Rev. Latino-Am. Enfermagem [online]. 2002, vol.10, n.1, pp. 55-63. ISSN 0104-1169.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0104-11692002000100009.

This article analyzes the Brazilian scientific production concerning nosocomial infection from 1950 to the present day and emphasizes the contribution from Nursing. The theoretical and analytical resource used was its contextualization with the country's social development and health policies, which enabled to demonstrate the close relationship between the development of nosocomial infection, the scientific production on such theme and the health care models adopted. The importance and limits of this scientific production are discussed as well as the need to include nosocomial infection in a larger field of care quality in general. The article also verified that the latest data on Nursing already show this tendency.

Palavras-chave : nosocomial infection.
