Wound Infections

Dear All,

I'm curious to find some information on the identity of bacteria that infect
wounds in hospitals. I'm aware of what kind of bacteria infect wounds in
theory, but I haven't got the hands on experience in identifying bacteria
from infected wounds that someone who has worked in a hospital path lab
might have. Clearly a diverse range of bacteria are involved, but what are
the most common bugs infecting wounds and has anyone done any statistical
breakdown on this?

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Thanks,

Colin.
