Nosocomial infections are infections that result from treatment at hospitals or healthcare service facilities. Linkwell is a rapidly growing company, serving a disinfectant market in China of approximately $6.25 Billion.
The Vice President of the Department of Medical Administration of Ministry of Health of The PRC, Mr. Zhou, Jun, addressed the meeting and praised the Nosocomial Committee's accomplishments for 2007. He joined the Director of the Nosocomial Committee, Mr. Zhu, Shijun, in the opening ceremony of the China Management of Hospital Infection web portal, which will be used to coordinate hospital sanitation issues. Shanghai Likang Disinfectant Hi-tech Co. Ltd, the subsidiary of Linkwell Corporation, co-sponsored the Nosocomial Committee event.
In a speech to the Nosocomial Committee meeting, Linkwell Corporation Chairman & CEO, Mr. Bian, Xuelian, stated, "Linkwell is honored to take on more obligations for China Hospital Infection Control. In 2007 Linkwell assumed more responsibilities for setting industry standards in China's disinfectant industry and will assist in the development of China Hospital Disinfection and Sterilization standards by working with all levels of government and medical authorities in 2008 and beyond."
More than 90 senior doctors of hospital infection management from Beijing's top tier hospitals and members of the Nosocomial Committee participated in the meeting.
Nosocomial infections are infections that result from treatment at hospitals or healthcare service facilities, but secondary to the patient's original condition. Nosocomial infections have alarmed the healthcare sector in the 21st century as antibiotic resistance spreads.
Thorough hand washing and/or use of alcohol rubs by all medical personnel before each patient contact and careful use of anti-microbial agents, such as antibiotics, are vital to combating Nosocomial infections. In the United States, it has been estimated that as many as one hospital patient in ten acquires a nosocomial infection, or 2 million patients a year. Annual cost estimates for treating Nosocomial infections in the U.S. range from $4.5 billion to $11 billion and up and contributed to 88,000 deaths in the U.S. in 1995. One third of nosocomial infections are considered preventable.
