Intestinal Infection Afflicts 13 of 1,000 Hospital Patients, Infection Rates 6.5 - 20 Times Greater Than Previous Estimates, New Study Says
Date:11/11/2008

obial stewardship programs with focus on restriction of antibiotics associated with CDI and unnecessary antimicrobial use. APIC's evidence-based elimination guides translate CDC recommendations into practice.

"Healthcare providers must intensify efforts toward developing prevention strategies that can be consistently applied across the continuum of care," said APIC CEO Kathy L. Warye. "Control of CDI requires adequate numbers of infection preventionists and environmental services personnel, and prevention practices need to be part of everyone's job within the institution. As part of our Targeting Zero initiative, APIC will continue to call for the commitment of clinical and administrative leadership to providing adequate resources for infection prevention programs to better protect patients in our nation's healthcare facilities."

The APIC National Prevalence Study of Clostridium difficile in U.S. Healthcare Facilities will be published in the American Journal of Infection Control. For more information about the study, visit http://www.apic.org.

The association's 12,000 members direct infection prevention programs that save lives and improve the bottom line for hospitals and other healthcare facilities around the globe. APIC advances its mission through education, research, collaboration, practice guidance, public policy and credentialing. Visit APIC online at http://www.apic.org
