Impact of Weekly Infection Control Team Rounding

Regular and well-organized inspection of infection control is an essential element of an infection control program. The aim of this study by Jeong, et al. (2020) was to identify the functional scope of weekly infection control team rounding (ICTR) in an acute care hospital. The researchers conducted weekly ICTR between Jan. 18 and Dec. 26, 2018 to improve the compliance to infection control and prevention measures at a 734-bed academic hospital in the Republic of Korea and analyzed the results retrospectively.

The researchers categorized the results into five groups: “well maintained,” “improvement needed,” “long-term support, such as space or manpower, needed,” “not applicable,” or “could not be observed”. A total of nine categories and 85 sub-elements of infection control and prevention practices were evaluated. The median number of infection control team (ICT) visits per department was 7 (interquartile range [IQR]: 6–7). The ICT assessed a median of 16 elements (IQR: 12–22), and a total of 7452 results were obtained. Of those, 75% were monitored properly, 22% were “not applicable”, and 4% were difficult to observe.

The most common practices that were difficult to observe were strategies to prevent catheter-related surgical site infections, pneumonia, and occupationally acquired infections as well as injection safety practices. Although the ICTR was able to maintain regular visits to each department, further strategies beyond regular ICTR are needed to reduce category of “could not observed." The researchers say this pilot study may provide an important reference for institutional infection prevention practices as it is the first study to investigate the functional coverage of ICTR.
