What are the exact duties of an Infection Control Nurse in a hospital?

Usually they are involved in the preventive measures to prevent Nosocomial infections. However, their are lots of infective diseases (like Typhoid, Brucellosis, Mumps, Measles etc, which have to be notified to the Public Health Authorities. Has the infection control nurse any role in the notification process? Is it her duty to collect the necessary information, fill up all the forms and send it to the health authorities?
