IHI Prevention (intrahospital infections)

IHI Prevention (intrahospital infections)

The present findings indicate that it is impossible to create the hospital without a risk, as well as to speak about IHI elimination. Well-organized prevention programs can reduce IHI rate for 1/3. Epidemiological monitoring, which is defined as an organized collection, processing and interpretation of data on the incidence of intrahospital infections, is considered to be the main link in the prevention and suppression of BI. The possibility of using microbiological laboratory for etiologic diagnosis of intrahospital infections and determination of sensitivity and possible resistance to antimicrobial drugs is crucial.
