(note: just disregard the facility internal infection control procedures and phone numbers)
list of diseases (alphabetical)
with their appropriate infection control category(ies):
below is the home page/table of contents for the above website. here you can select standard, airborne, droplet and/or contact precautions,
along with other options, to get a brief description of each. within each section, it will redirect you to the alphabetical disease list above: http://www.med.yale.edu/ynhh/infection/toc.html
