The prevalence of infections in hospitalized patients

, : The prevalence of infections in hospitalized patients. Ugeskrift for Laeger 150(6): 340-342

The prevalence of infections in patients hospitalized in Horsholm Hospital was investigated. Hospital infections occurred in 9.2% out of 450 patients investigated. The prevalence of hospital infection was of the same magnitude as found in a similar investigation ten years previously. The level of activity of the hospital has, however, changed considerably during the ten-year period with reduced duration of hospitalization and increased number of admissions. Compared to ten years previously, significantly fewer patients received antibiotic therapy, more patients had been submitted to operation and there were more medical patients with community-acquired infections, particularly elderly patients with lower respiratory infections. The prevalence investigation which was employed here has shown definite advantages as a form of investigation which can reveal problems in a short time. These may be solved immediately or may give cause for more thorough investigation.
