Summary

Without effective ICPB practices implemented in the primary care and referral settings, the clinician’s efforts at disease prevention and treatment are compromised and, in some cases, nullified. Because many pathogens in the hospital environment have zoonotic potential, barriers to human exposure to animal pathogens in a clinical setting also serve to safeguard public health. Taken together, the consequences of ICPB have profound implications for clinical practice and should be of high priority.
