Spanish translation:Pacientes con infecciones hospitalarias
Explanation:
Así se dice en Argentina.

Las infecciones hospitalarias se diferencian de las adquiridas en la comunidad porque los gérmenes causantes son mucho + resistentes al tratamiento (x eso sobreviven en los hospitales), y son x lo tanto enfermedades + severas que las infecciones comunes.

infección nosocomial


Explanation:
I found that "nosocomially acquired infection" is a slightly common expansion of "nosocomial infection" (265 google hits, vs. about 15000 for "nosocomial infection(s)". Does the extra wordiness add anything subtle to the meaning? I'm not sure; anyway, in Spanish, all the references seem to point simply to "infección nosocomial".
