Infection prevention and control. Project on the ICU in Herbertpur Christian Hospital

Samenvatting

The central question of this project was:
• What is the prevalence of cross contamination in the nursing station before and after supervising and improving the protocols and standards on infection prevention and control on the ICU?
• How can the staff be motivated and supervised to follow the protocols and standards on infection prevention and control?
To discover what the situation was on the ICU, an observation on infection prevention and control was done. Beside that a culture was taken in the nursing station to measure the prevalence of microorganisms.
After the first measurement the project group gave several teachings and supervised the staff on the ICU. To improve the adherence to protocols, alcohol based hand rub was provided along with other provisions. To discover the improvements a second measurement was executed after this month of teaching and supervision.
The cultures did not show any pathogenic microorganisms. The microorganisms that were found are dust and can be decreased by cleaning and dusting the ICU better. The amount of air contaminants is decreased by 50% during the project.
The observation before and after the teachings and supervision showed an increase of hand hygiene interventions from 14% to 39% of all opportunities and the use of gloves has increased from 53% to 68%, probably because of the introduction of hand alcohol and because of the teachings and supervision on the ICU.
