About prognosis:

The 'prognosis' of Nosocomial infections usually refers to the likely outcome of Nosocomial infections. The prognosis of Nosocomial infections may include the duration of Nosocomial infections, chances of complications of Nosocomial infections, probable outcomes, prospects for recovery, recovery period for Nosocomial infections, survival rates, death rates, and other outcome possibilities in the overall prognosis of Nosocomial infections. Naturally, such forecast issues are by their nature unpredictable.
