We performed a questionnaire survey in 42 institutions in the Hyogo region to understand the present status of microbiology laboratories in small or medium-sized hospitals. The results of the survey showed that 14 institutions with less than 300 beds had one or two microbiological technologists, who had to perform other inspectional duties in addition to the technologist's job. Such institutions lack ICD and ICN (Infection Control Doctors and Infection Control Nurses, respectively) facilities, so various consultations and inquiries regarding hospital-acquired infection were directed to the microbiology laboratory...

The Zarit Caregiver Burden Interview (ZBI) is a standardized, validated, reliable tool for assessment of the burden of caregivers for dementia patients, and has been used in many studies in North America...
