Surveillance of infections in hospital : Agents and antibiotic-resistance.
The surveillance system for Hospital Acquired Infections (HAI) implemented in the S. Eugenio hospital of Rome allows to monitor the distribution of the micro-organisms by service and their resistance to antibiotics.
It is based upon the data collected by the Central Analysis Laboratory of the hospital.
The data of four high-risk departments (Surgical service, Intensive Care Unit, Haematology, Burn Unit) are reported.
In the period October 1992-September 1993,3909 samples have been analyzed ; 1603 (43,1%) were found positive to the microbiologic analysis.
The results of the antibiotic resistance concerning four micro-organisms, agents of HAI are reported and discussed.
Surveillance systems are necessary to limit the frequency of HAI.
