Infection Controls

  • Our infection control protocols pertain to a wide spectrum of interventions & have been developed jointly with intensivists & anesthetists
  • ICUs - high risk areas for patient where lifethreatening mistakes & omissions in care can occur
  • Checklist of care should be addressed daily
  • Critically ill patients highly vulnerable to health care associated infection, resulting in significant morbidity & prolonged length of hospital stay
  • Reponsibility of every member of the health care team to ensure compliance with hospital and unit infection control policies - like hand-washing before & after examining a patient; use of alcohol hand rubs; use of sterile barriers & disposable gloves; safe disposal of all sharps & patient consumables; & traffic control
  • Bedside Analysis - checklist use has reduced ALOS & improved infection control indices
