CLIMVIB also provides the service of “Surveillance of hospital-acquired infections” according to the National Plan of Infections Control. Routine screening tests for “alert germs” and bacterial resistance are performed. All epidemiological data (especially hospital multi-resistant organisms) are monitored by asoftware that promptly alerts departments by notifying them in real-time of the sentinel germ identified, thus facilitating the containment procedures. The hospital map of the infections and antibacterial resistance is evaluated in the clinical departments by audit and quarterly reports in collaboration with the Committee of Hospital-acquired Infections.
The Unit periodically runs microbiological analysis of water circuits of dialysis and environmental controls especially for Legionella.
