Hospital Infection Control
The care of critically ill patients in the intensive care unit (ICU) is a basic feature of modern hospital setup. Nosocomial infections are one of the most common complications that occur in ICU patients. The incidence of nosocomial infection or hospital-acquired infections is about 5-10% in Indian setup. Hospital infection control programs can prevent approx. 33% of nosocomial infections. Diagnostic procedures, medical devices, medical and surgical treatment are risk factors in the hospital environment. The occurrence of these infections has consequences such as increased risk of mortality (double or triple), prolonged hospital stays, and increased medical expenses. Patients in the ICU are often receiving high doses of various antibiotics, are in close proximity to each other, and are being cared for by busy physicians and nurses. All these factors create an ideal environment for developing and transmitting resistant organisms. Specific types of antibiotic-resistant microorganisms vary with the type of unit, patient population, procedures, associated equipment, and antibiotic usage.
The ICU is an important reservoir of antibiotic-resistant bacteria that may spread to other clinical areas of the hospital. The widespread, empirical use of broad-spectrum antibiotics, while often clinically appropriate, selects resistant microbes for survival; these readily colonize critically ill patients. Poor compliance with hand-washing protocols (especially among the medical staff), nurse shortages, and the crowding of patients and their relatives promote horizontal transmission of resistant strains.
Detection, control and preventive measures are of the utmost importance in every ICU. These methods include microbiological surveillance of ICU/NICU/Operation theaters, isolating patients, washing hands, using protective clothing, cleaning and disinfecting equipment, cleaning the environment, and providing education and training. We believe that by monitoring hospital infections and then communicating results to the hospital administrators and consultants is very important to the quality of medical care delivered. By detecting abnormal factors in the environment and correcting them, hospitals can control infections in the ICU and thus can give better care to their patients. This also gives a ‘good name’ to the place and people who are associated with it.
