Dear Sir,

The problem of nosocomial infection is important in infection control. "An important concern is the contamination in medical personnel". Here, the authors report the result from a nasal swab microbiology study of hospital workers, which is a report from a rural Thai hospital. Overall, 46 medical personnel in a Thai rural district hospital were studied for nasal swab microbiology[1]. The result is presented in [Table 1]. Of interest is the fact that there are many identified bacteria. The identified bacteria can be the cause of infection among medical personnel if there is no good sanitation and those bacteria can also be the cause of nosocomial infection for patients[2].
