Free Infection Control Supplement
Nurses are vital in preventing the spread of infection.
Infection control is still a serious problem in UK hospitals and the elimination of infection risk, whether to patients or health care professionals, is regarded as a priority. Nurses are responsible and accountable for reducing infection risk and therefore require the knowledge and skills required to prevent and control infection.
In this Infection Control Supplement, British Journal of Nursing looks at key areas affecting infection control nursing.
These are just a few of the issues addressed in this supplement published by BJN:
- How can nurses reduce infection risk?
- How can percutaneous needlestick injury be avoided?
- What can nurses do to prevent urinary tract infections?
- How can the use of Ez-Lok, a needle-free port, contribute to a contamination free environment?
- How can nurses reduce the number of hospital acquired infections, such as antimicrobial-resistant organisms?
- What is the relationship between bed occupancy, turnover times and MRSA?
- How can an air transportable isolater be used to effectively transport a patient with suspected Lassa fever, or any other tropical disease, without spreading infection?
