Columbia's Nursing School Launches "Keep It Clean for Kids" (KICK)
Date:8/23/2012

NEW YORK, Aug. 23, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Columbia University School of Nursing has received a $1.2 million grant to research and improve infection prevention practices in pediatric long-term care facilities.  The four-year grant from the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) will enable researchers to undertake the "Keep It Clean for Kids" Project, or KICK, a study assessing hand hygiene at three New York-area facilities that care for children with complex health conditions and disabilities.

Children in pediatric long term care facilities account for forty percent of medical expenditures for children overall, and are at especially high risk of contracting such health-care associated infections (HAIs) as MRSA, influenza, and hepatitis A.  This is the first study of its kind to provide information about the rates and types of infection in these children and test if the KICK intervention can reduce these infections.

The project will be headed by Elaine Larson, RN, PhD, Professor of Pharmaceutical and Therapeutic Research and Associate Dean for Research at Columbia University School of Nursing, and Lisa Saiman, MD, MPH, Professor of Clinical Pediatrics at Columbia University Medical Center and Hospital Epidemiologist at Morgan Stanley Children's Hospital of New York-Presbyterian.

"The goal of this study is to reduce HAIs in pediatric long term care facilities with a tailored intervention that combines innovative technology, active participation of leadership and staff, continuous workflow assessments and feedback," said Dr. Larson. "We want to change the patient safety culture so that the benefits of KICK are sustainable and transferable to other pediatric long term care facilities."

The three study sites are: St. Mary's Healthcare System for Children (Bayside, NY)
