Place the patient in an AIIR as soon as possible. Routine donning of gowns upon entrance into a high risk unit e. Get Email Updates To receive email updates about this page, enter your email address: Antimicrobial agents that may be targeted include vancomycin, third-generation cephalosporins, and anti-anaerobic agents for VRE, third-generation cephalosporins for ESBLs; and quinolones and carbapenems. No recommendation is made for routine use of gloves, gowns, or both to prevent MDRO transmission in ambulatory or home care settings.
Masks are not otherwise recommended for prevention of MDRO transmission from patients to healthcare personnel during routine care e. If it becomes necessary to place patients who require Droplet Precautions in a room with a patient who does not have the same infection:.
Needles, cannulae and syringes are sterile, single-use items; they should not be reused for another patient nor to access a medication or solution that might be used for a subsequent patient.
Target all healthcare personnel for education and training, including but not limited to medical, nursing, clinical technicians, laboratory staff; property service housekeepinglaundry, maintenance and dietary workers; students, contract staff and volunteers. Edit [February ] Edit: Discontinue Xhqp Precautions after signs and symptoms have resolved or according to pathogen-specific recommendations in Appendix A.

Do not wear bov same pair of gloves for the care of more than one patient. Strongly recommended for implementation and supported by some experimental, clinical, or epidemiologic studies and dcc strong theoretical rationale. Handle used textiles and fabrics with minimum agitation to avoid contamination of air, surfaces and persons. Intensify the frequency of MDRO educational programs for healthcare personnel, especially those who work in areas in which MDRO rates are not decreasing.
For patients with skin lesions associated with varicella or smallpox or draining skin lesions caused by M. November 5, Page last updated: Limit decolonization of HCP found to be colonized with MRSA to persons who have been epidemiologically linked as a likely source of ongoing transmission to patients. Increase the frequency of compiling and monitoring antimicrobial susceptibility summary reports for a targeted MDRO as indicated by an increase in incidence of infection or colonization with ncdiod MDRO.
Remove and dispose of contaminated PPE and perform hand hygiene prior to transporting patients on Contact Precautions. If indicated by assessment of the MDRO problem, collect cultures to assess the colonization status of roommates and other patients with substantial exposure to patients with known MDRO infection or colonization. Wash hands with ogv soap and water or with antimicrobial soap and water if contact with spores e.
In hospitals and LTCFsensure that a multidisciplinary process giv in place to review antimicrobial utilization, local susceptibility patterns 36 antibiogramsand antimicrobial agents included in the formulary to foster appropriate antimicrobial use.
Avoid placing patients on Contact Precautions ncudod the same room with patients who nciddo conditions that may increase the risk of adverse outcome from infection or that may facilitate transmission e.
Implement a multidisciplinary process to monitor and improve healthcare personnel HCP adherence to recommended practices for Dhqqp and Contact Precautions. Establish policies and procedures for routine and targeted cleaning of environmental surfaces as indicated by the level of patient contact and degree of soiling. Calculate and analyze prevalence and incidence rates of targeted MDRO infection and colonization in populations at risk; when possible, distinguish colonization from infection.
Suggested for implementation and supported by suggestive clinical or epidemiologic studies or a theoretical rationale. Provide human and fiscal resources to meet occupational health needs ncido to infection control e. Filter incoming air using central or point-of-use high efficiency particulate HEPA filters capable of removing Select play toys that can be easily cleaned and disinfected Do not permit use of stuffed furry toys if they will be shared Clean and disinfect large stationary toys e.
Develop and implement policies and procedures to ensure that reusable patient care equipment is cleaned and reprocessed appropriately before use on another patient.
Include in education and training programs, information concerning use of vaccines as an adjunctive infection control measure. Strongly recommended for implementation and supported by some experimental, clinical, or epidemiologic studies and a strong theoretical rationale. When possible, leave patient-care equipment in the home until the patient is discharged from home care services. Monitor the incidence of epidemiologically-important organisms and targeted HAIs that have substantial impact on outcome and for which effective preventive interventions are available; use information collected through surveillance of high-risk populations, procedures, devices and highly transmissible infectious agents to detect transmission of infectious agents in the healthcare facility IA III.
In ambulatory settingsplace patients who require Contact Precautions in an examination room or cubicle as soon as possible. Intensify and reinforce training of environmental staff who work in areas targeted for intensified MDRO control and monitor adherence to environmental cleaning policies.
Gv smallpox vaccine to exposed susceptible persons within 4 days after exposure. Vacate units for environmental assessment and intensive cleaning when previous efforts to eliminate environmental reservoirs have failed. Place patients who pose a risk for transmission to others e. Ensure availability of human and fiscal resources to provide clinical microbiology laboratory support, including a sufficient number of medical technologists trained in microbiology, appropriate to the healthcare setting, for monitoring transmission of microorganisms, planning and conducting epidemiologic investigations, and detecting emerging pathogens.
Use EPA-registered disinfectants that have microbiocidal i. Skip directly to search Skip directly to A to Z list Skip directly to navigation Skip directly to page options Skip directly to site content.
Ensure that patients are physically separated i. No recommendation; Unresolved issue.
Burden of Clostridium difficile Infection in the United States. Provide tissues and no-touch receptacles e. Tracking Crc difficile Infection CDC is working to better understand the true number of infections caused by these organisms in the US. Monitor susceptibility to detect emergence of resistance to the decolonizing agent. Support participation of the facility or healthcare system in local, regional, and national coalitions to combat emerging or growing MDRO problems.
