Objective. The purpose of this article is to characterize the conduct of internal control in medical units since the entry into force of the Regulation of the Minister of Health of 27 May 2010 on the scope, method and frequency of internal audit in the area of implementation of measures to prevent the spread of infection and infectious diseases.
