Metrics details. In the Yemeni healthcare setting, basic infection control measures are necessary to reduce the rates of hospital-associated infections. A descriptive cross-sectional study was conducted from April to May A non-probability sample of nurses working in the private hospitals located in the capital city of Yemen was selected as study participants. A item questionnaire was used to assess knowledge and practices regarding nosocomial infection control measures among the study subjects.

Hospital Infection Control : A Systematic Literature Review | Bartleby
We found that HAI among our study population were predominantly caused by gram-negative pathogens, including P. Many developing countries such as Kazakhstan lack surveillance systems which could effectively decrease incidence of HAIs and healthcare costs for their treatment. The epidemiological data on HAI in Kazakhstan currently is underrepresented and poorly reported in the literature. Based on this and previous studies, we propose that the most important interventions to prevent HAI at the NRCOT and similar Healthcare Institutions in Kazakhstan are active surveillance, regular infection control audits, rational and effective antibacterial therapy, and general hygiene measures.
Problem Statement (PICOT): Nosocomial Infections
Known risk factors include birth weight, gestational age, severity of illness and its related length of stay, and instrumentation. The purpose of this article is to determine the occurrence of Nosocomial Infections NIs , including infection rates, main infection sites, and common microorganisms. The primary reasons for admission were intauterin growth retardation
Healthcare-associated infection is a global threat in healthcare which increases the emergence of multiple drug-resistant microbial infections. Hence, continuous surveillance data is required before or after patient discharge from health institutions though such data is scarce in developing countries. Similarly, ongoing infection surveillance data are not available in Ethiopia. However, various primary studies conducted in the country showed different magnitude and determinants of healthcare-associated infection from to Therefore, this systematic review and meta-analysis aimed to estimate the national pooled prevalence and determinants of healthcare-associated infection in Ethiopia.
