Therapeutic activity may be accompanied with unpleasant consequences like any other activity. Hospitals are the central providers of therapeutic services. These services are provided organized, continuously and reliably in the hospitals. If we regard health as the final product of therapeutic activity in the organization, so-called hospital, so we should call hospital infection as the side effect of this organization. Hospital infection is naturally a multi-dimensional phenomenon. Humans are infected by it and suffer from it and human financial capital is spent for its treatment. Being contagious, it is probable that the infection be passed from one patient to another or to the staff in hospital (in therapy centers).It may take a social dimension. At last as a threatening factor, hospital infection requests the safety, smartness and organized cooperation of therapy and management specialists. Regarding its complicated dimensions, this problem must be considered as a major point by therapy staff, managers and officials of therapy centers.
