We Are Not As Good As We Think! Prevalence of Hospital Acquired Infections in the USA Remains High



Soource: Royal College of Nursing.org
We are not as good as we think.

The prevalence of hospital-acquired infections has decreased to 3.2% from 4% of hospitalized patients, as just reported here in the New England Journal of Medicine. No significant improvement in C. difficile infection was reported. 

This is a modest safety gain in my opinion. 

C difficile reduction has lagged because of ongoing antibiotic overuse, overly sensitive testing mechanisms (PCR) and less than optimal environmental disinfection. Probable diverse reservoirs for transmission, including the community, are also contributing factors.

To further improve the prevalence of hospital-acquired infections healthcare systems must vigorously focus on implementation science, with the specific use of pragmatic, real world interventions that reliably decrease risk.  This includes consistent mechanisms to ensure hand hygiene, patient chlorhexidene bathing, the use of safety checklists/safety time-outs and heighten environmental disinfection.  In addition, more strategies are needed to improve antibiotic use so as to minimize over treatment and selective pressure for drug resistant bacteria.

We can do better for the safety of our patients.

  3. hello everyone,i am here to share a testimony that changed my life and that of my husband,When I found Dr.ozalogbo I was in desperate need of bringing my ex husband back. He left me for another woman. It happened so fast and I had no say in the situation at all. He just dumped me after 5 years of marriage with no explanation. I contact Dr.ozalogbo through his email and He told me what i need to do before he can help me and i did what he told me to, after i provided what he wanted, he cast a reuniting spell to help us get back together again. Shortly after he did his spell, my husband started texting me again and felt horrible for what he just put me through. He said that I was the most important person in his life and he knows that now. We moved in together and he was more open to me than before and he started spending more time with me than before. Ever since Dr.ozalogbo helped me, my partner is very stable, faithful and closer to me than before. I highly recommend Dr.ozalogbo to anyone in need of help.
