Reynolds, M.G., Anh, B.H., Thu, V.H., et al. (2006). Factors Associated with Nosocomial SARS-CoV Transmission Among Healthcare Workers in Hanoi, Vietnam, 2003. BMC Public Health. 6: 207.
The authors conducted a small cohort study to determine factors for nosocomial transmission of SARS among health care workers, and which job categories had the highest rates of infection. Nurses working on general wards and who cared for SARS patients had the highest attack rates. Non-clinical staff experienced a 19% attack rate. These findings have implications for hospital infection control plans.
