Book Review: Prevention and Control of Nosocomial Infections, 4th Edition
TLDR
The chapter on “Antibiotics and the Immune System” discusses an important topic that should be part of any clinical text on infectious diseases; however, some of the data presented are incorrect and others have been omitted that should have been available to the authors when they were making their final changes.
Essentials of infection prevention in the pediatric population
Infection control in child daycare centers: logistics, knowledge, and practices of caregivers
TLDR
The level of knowledge and practice of caregivers was below optimum, and satisfactory features of the DCCs included the aeration, level of cleanliness, and availability of hand washing facilities, while the availability of gloves and aprons, alcohol-based products, and medical examination rooms were not satisfactory.
[Application and evaluation of a web-based education program on blood-borne infection control for nurses].
TLDR
Application of a Web-based, blood-borne infection control program is effective, and can be expanded to other healthcare workers who also have a high risk of blood-bourne infections.
Guideline for disinfection and sterilization in healthcare facilities, 2008
TLDR
There is no evidence that using antiseptics or disinfectants selects for antibiotic-resistant organisms in nature or that such mutants survive in nature.
Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report
TLDR
These data support previous findings that children with COVID-19 might not have reported fever or cough as often as do adults and suggest social distancing and everyday preventive behaviors remain important for all age groups as patients with less serious illness and those without symptoms likely play an important role in disease transmission.
Elevated BMI-associated Characteristics of Patients with Invasive MRSA Infection in the Atlanta, Georgia Metro Area, 2005-2008
TLDR
There may be a higher risk for iMRSA in overweight and obese individuals, particularly if other adiposity-related health problems are present, according to the results of this study.

TLDR
Active surveillance cultures are essential to identify the reservoir for spread of MRSA and VRE infections and make control possible using the CDC's long-recommended contact precautions.

TLDR
The purpose of this review is to describe this document, explain the rationale for some of the recommendations, discuss limitations of its use, and propose new directions for future revisions.
Guideline for isolation precautions: preventing transmission of infectious agents in healthcare settings 2007.
TLDR
The ability of hospital ventilation systems to filter Aspergillus and other fungi following a building implosion and the impact of bedside design and furnishing on nosocomial infections are investigated.

TLDR
Data from this analysis could form the basis for a more comprehensive evaluation of the cost of resistance and the potential economic benefits of prevention programs.

TLDR
If the laboratory and infection control personnel cooperate and collaborate rather than compete, both programs will be successful and the patients and the hospital will benefit because the risk of nosocomial infections and the frequency of resistant organisms will be reduced.
Establishing a hospital program to improve antimicrobial use, control bacterial resistance and contain healthcare costs: the University of Louisville experience.
TLDR
The successful impact the antimicrobial teams have had on optimizing antimicrobial use in the hospital by improving compliance with the guidelines, controlling resistant organisms, and preventing escalation of antimicrobial cost over the years is summarized.
Strategies for Optimal Antimicrobial Use
TLDR
Although there is evidence to document the futility and possible harm of antibiotic therapy for many respiratory tract infections, antibiotic prescribing continues for these primarily viral conditions.
Invasive methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus infections in the United States.
TLDR
Invasive MRSA infection affects certain populations disproportionately and is a major public health problem primarily related to health care but no longer confined to intensive care units, acute care hospitals, or any health care institution.
Acute kidney injury associated with trimethoprim/sulfamethoxazole.
TLDR
In a middle-aged male inpatient population treated for a minimum of 6 days, AKI is much more common with trimethoprim/sulfamethoxazole therapy than previously reported and neither an effect of dose nor duration was detected in a univariate analysis.
Early switch from intravenous to oral antibiotics and early hospital discharge: a prospective observational study of 200 consecutive patients with community-acquired pneumonia.
TLDR
Using simple clinical and laboratory criteria, a significant proportion of hospitalized patients with community-acquired pneumonia can be treated with early switch and early discharge, and this model did not affect patient outcome, decreased the length of hospitalization, and was associated with a high level of patient satisfaction.
