Bundling infection control interventions should decrease incidence of Healthcare-Associated Infections in General Medical Wards at Siriraj Hospital, Bangkok, Thailand
Current projects study veteran patients with chronic ulcers and MRSA colonization and infection, patients with imipenem-resistant P. aeruginosa colonization and infection, the relationship...
The purpose of this study is to estimate the burden of disease, identify risk factors associated with nosocomial bacteremia among neonates and assess the efficacy of low-cost measures targ...
This is the intervention phase of a study to investigate the impact of low-cost bundled interventions on improving the infection control practices in the labor and delivery units in rural ...
There are now several licensed drug treatments for patients with HCV infection. These medications have been shown to be very effective in getting rid of the virus in patients with HCV infe...
Failure to control a periprosthetic joint infection (PJI) often leads to referral of the patient to a tertiary care institution. However, there are no data regarding the effect of prior surgical inter...
Reports of posttreatment control following antiretroviral therapy (ART) have prompted the question of how common immune control of HIV infection is in the absence of ART. In contrast to adult infectio...
Infection control in the emergency department is important for hospital risk management; however, few clinical guidelines have been established. This study aimed to determine whether hospitals in Japa...
Valid data are a crucial aspect of infection prevention and control programs. The aim of this study was to examine the accuracy of routine reporting in the Iranian Nosocomial Infection Surveillance Sy...
Disease transmission can occur through direct contact, blood, oral fluids, or other secretions and indirect contact with contaminated instruments, operatory equipment, or objects. Prevention of cross ...
Programs of disease surveillance, generally within health care facilities, designed to investigate, prevent, and control the spread of infections and their causative microorganisms.
Physicians or other qualified individuals responsible for implementing and overseeing the policies and procedures followed by a health care facility to reduce the risk of infection to patients and staff.
Efforts to prevent and control the spread of infections within dental health facilities or those involving provision of dental care.
The segregation of patients with communicable or other diseases for a specified time. Isolation may be strict, in which movement and social contacts are limited; modified, where an effort to control specified aspects of care is made in order to prevent cross infection; or reverse, where the patient is secluded in a controlled or germ-free environment in order to protect him or her from cross infection.
The use of biological mechanisms, usually involving living organisms such as bacteria, for the reduction or regulation of the population of noxious, destructive, or dangerous pests. Environmental concerns have focused attention on natural forms of disease control as potentially safe and effective alternatives to chemical pesticides. This has led to increased efforts to develop control strategies that rely on natural predators and parasites or that involve genetically engineered microbial pest control agents.
