Preventing Ultrasound-related Infections - A New Priority for Infection Control?
Speaker: Dr Cathryn Murphy RN. B. Photog, MPH, PhD, CIC.
Nanosonics recently sponsored an educational symposium at ACIPC 2017 and we would like to share with you the educational resources from the event to assist you with your infection prevention challenges.
You may download the symposium presentation and view the video from the event.
The presentation provides further insights and understanding of the cross-infection risks and challenges involved in protecting your patients.
The presentation also introduces a new population-level study, the first of its kind. Conducted by Health Protection Scotland and NHS Scotland, it demonstrates a greater risk of positive microbiological reports and antibiotic prescriptions within 30 days for adults who had undergone semi‑invasive ultrasound procedures (SIUP) when high level disinfection was not used as standard of care.
