In what sense are S. epidermidis infections an example of how changing human practices can provide new opportunities for bacterial pathogens? S. epidermidis is classified as an opportunist. Why is this the case? 2. Explain why infections of the skin occur more often in folds of the skin or under bandages than in regions of skin exposed to the air.

When he later added washing of medical instruments to the birthing protocols, the incidence of puerperal fever was nearly eliminated from the hospital ward. Semmelweis’ discovery remained controversial for many years, and it was only in the early 1900s that hand washing was universally accepted as an essential medical practice. Today, proper disinfection of the hands is one of the most basic and firmly entrenched clinical procedures, especially for surgeons. Nonetheless, the advent of antibiotics and the consequent decrease in deaths due to hospitalacquired infections has led some surgeons to neglect this important practice.
