Increased risk of HAIs and the case for patient decolonization in the COVID-19 era
COVID-19 has forced hospitals to rethink protocols to enhance the safety of patients and staff. The pandemic has caused a diversion of resources, increasing the risk of HAIs, including those caused by methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus.
This whitepaper will discuss:
- How periods of disruption often lead to new and better solutions
- How COVID-19 affords this opportunity
- How decolonization can reduce secondary bacterial infection risk during flu season
- How universal decolonization can improve efficiency, reduce personal protective equipment use as well as the risk of surgical site infections and central line-associated bloodstream infections
