Also known as nosocomial infections, health care-associated infections usually develop after a patient's admission to a long-term care facility. This program describes the causes of and prevention strategies for health care-associated infections in hospitals and other medical facilities. Outlining a hypothetical chain of infection (pathogen, reservoir, portal of exit, mode of transmission, portal of entry, and host), the video identifies the pathogens most commonly associated with nosocomial infections and promotes thorough and regular hand hygiene, disinfection procedures, and adherence to CDC prevention guidelines. In-depth sections cover best practices for catheters, respirators, suction tubes, and wound sites so as to prevent transmission of urinary tract infections, pneumonias, skin infections, and bloodstream infections. Designated for 1 contact hour of continuing nursing education.
