Abstract:
Poster presented at AORN's 58th Annual Congress: Background: Ostersund Hospital is located in northern Sweden. The hospital has 370 beds and is the only one in the county of Jamtland for an area that is larger than Denmark. Within the catchment, there are only around 128,000 inhabitants, but ski tourism may periodically double the figure. The hospital has a central surgical department with ten operating rooms (ORs), divided into general surgery, orthopedics, gynecology, and otology/rhinology surgery. Infections with bacterias that have become resistant to antibiotics are a huge and rapidly growing problem in European hospitals. Approximately three million people in the EU catch a health care associated infection every year, of who around 50,000 die. Sweden has a unique law that requires all staff in patient-related work to comply with basic hygiene, whether the patient is visibly contaminated or not. Sweden, in comparison with other European countries, has a low number of MRSA infection rates. One explanation for this is the prevention work of basic hygiene routines. Aim: To describe for the staff at Ostersund Hospital basic hygiene routines for the prevention of infections. To educate and supervise the staff on the basic principles of how to create a barrier against infection and disease transmission in all health care situations. Result: In order to do the right thing, you have to know what is right. This poster shows the development studies conducted to reduce health care associated infections. It shows in words and pictures the dressing that is allowed in the OR and also describes the basic hygiene routines briefly with pictures. Today, a clean air suit is used by all personnel in all kinds of surgery. A correct use of the clean air suit reduces the bacteria-carrying particles inside the OR and through this reduces the risk of surgical site infection (SSI). This poster highlights the important points of hygiene and clothing practices in the OR. By following the procedures, a high level of perioperative nursing care is ensured.
