Case definitions used (protocol version 2006). HAI, healthcare-associated infection; LTCF, long-term care facility. The case definitions of the national surveillance system for point-prevalence of healthcare-associated infections in hospitals and long-term care facilities for elderly in Norway are simplified and modified versions of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) definitions [31], except for skin infections where the definition of McGeer et al. is used [25].
