Infection Prevention and Control

Despite all advances in medical care, Healthcare Associated Infections (HCAI) remain a serious and ongoing problem for medical professionals and their patients. The 2006 Hospital Infection Society Healthcare Associated Infection Prevalence Survey found that one in 20 service users in Ireland had a HCAI at the time of the survey. CRBSIs (catheter-related bloodstream infections) in particular continue to be associated with considerable morbidity and mortality, and cause high treatment costs. Promedicare assists public and private hospitals in their general programmes for the control and prevention of infections. We work with our manufacturing partners to stay up to date on developments in infection prevention and control, and we bring new and innovative products to the market.
