AIM To assess the predictive power of three systems: Infection Probability Score, APACHE II and KARNOFSKY score to the onset of healthcare-associated infections in haematology-oncology patients. BACKGROUND The high incidence of healthcare-associated infections is a frequent problem in haematology-oncology patients that affects morbidity and mortality of these patients. DESIGN A retrospective surveillance survey. METHOD The survey was conducted for seven months in the haematology unit of a… CONTINUE READING
