Waging a high-tech battle against hospital-acquired infections

Waging a high-tech battle against hospital-acquired infections

Anne Dikon, director of infection prevention at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital in Hamilton, goes online each morning to scan alerts of potential infections throughout the hospital. If the system flags a patient being readmitted, who previously had an infection, that patient will be assigned a private room. The system also highlights areas in the hospital with higher-than-average infection rates. That enables the staff to focus resources where needed to increase training on hygiene, hand washing, and cleaning.  (Fitzgerald, NJ Spotlight)
