CEUS-1014-INT: Infection Control and Standard Precautions

Course Abstract:

Health and social care settings can provide a challenging environment in which to manage risks associated with the transfer of micro-organisms from patient to patient or between the environment, equipment, staff and patients. Vulnerable patients, opportunist pathogens, and the intensity and complexity of health care interventions means that vigilance is required at all times.

Course Description:

It is estimated that 5% to 10% of hospitalized patients acquire an infection after admission to hospital. It has also been shown that patients with hospital acquired infection remain in hospital longer on average than patients without infection, with the longest hospital stay and highest costs associated with multiple infections. Hospital acquired infection is a serious health hazard as it leads to increased patients’ morbidity and mortality, length of hospital stay and cost associated with hospital stay. Hence, it is important to minimize the risk of spread of infection to patients and staff in hospital by implementing good infection control program and universal precautions.
