OBJECTIVE While a direct relation between hospital construction and concomitant infection rates has been clearly established, few data are available regarding the environmental decontamination effects of renovation in which surfaces are replaced and regarding subsequent infection incidence. DESIGN Retrospective clinical study with vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus (VRE) molecular strain typing and environmental cultures. SETTING A regional referral center for acute leukemia and hematopoietic stem-cell transplantation...

We assessed multidrug-resistant organism (MDRO) patient hand colonization in relation to the environment in post-acute care to determine risk factors for MDRO hand colonization. Patient hand colonization was significantly associated with environmental contamination. Risk factors for hand colonization included disability, urinary catheter, recent antibiotic use, and prolonged hospital stay. Infect Control Hosp Epidemiol 2017:1-4.

Contaminated surfaces have been implicated as a potential route for dissemination of the emerging multidrug-resistant fungal pathogen Candida auris. In laboratory testing, C. auris and other Candida species persisted for 7 days on moist or dry surfaces. Candida species were recovered frequently from the hospital environment, particularly from moist surfaces. Infect Control Hosp Epidemiol 2017;1-3.

OBJECTIVE To explore the trends in infection control peer-reviewed journals, mainstream media, and blogs written by infection control professionals DESIGN Narrative and scoping reviews METHODS Narrative and scoping reviews were performed to identify trending infection prevention and control topics from international journals, national news websites, newspapers, and so-called grey literature throughout 2015. Data were analyzed using word frequencies, and results are displayed in word clouds. RESULTS For 2015, our search identified 6 news websites with a total of published 116 articles, 71 articles from selected newspapers, and 214 publications from infection control websites...

BACKGROUND Clostridium difficile infection (CDI) and asymptomatic carriage of toxigenic C. difficile are common in long-term care facilities (LTCFs). However, whether C. difficile is frequently acquired in the LTCF versus during acute-care admissions remains unknown. OBJECTIVE To test the hypothesis that LTCF residents often acquire C. difficile colonization and infection in the LTCF DESIGN This 5-month cohort study was conducted to determine the incidence of acquisition of C. difficile colonization and infection in asymptomatic patients transferred from a Veterans Affairs hospital to an affiliated LTCF...

OBJECTIVE To evaluate the incidence of surgical-site infections (SSIs) in a cohort of liver transplant recipients and to assess risk factors predisposing patients to these infections. DESIGN Prospective observational cohort study. SETTING Single transplant center in Canada. PATIENTS Patients who underwent liver transplantation between February 2011 and August 2014. METHODS Multivariate logistic regression was used to identify independent risk factors for SSIs in liver transplant patients. RESULTS We enrolled 250 liver transplant recipients...

OBJECTIVE To evaluate the impact of early infectious diseases (ID) antimicrobial stewardship (AMS) intervention on inpatient sepsis antibiotic management. DESIGN Interventional, nonrandomized, controlled study. SETTING Tertiary-care referral hospital, Sydney, Australia. PATIENTS Consecutive, adult, non-intensive care unit (non-ICU) inpatients triggering an institutional clinical sepsis pathway from May to August 2015. INTERVENTION All patients reviewed by an ID Fellow within 24 hours of sepsis pathway trigger underwent case review and clinic file documentation of recommendations...

We evaluated the isolation of postoperative nontuberculous mycobacteria (NTM) associated with heater-cooler devices (HCDs) used during cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) surgery in the Veterans Health Administration from January 1, 2010, to December 31, 2016. In more than 38,000 CPB procedures, NTM was isolated in 111 patients; 1 Mycobacterium chimaera mediastinitis case and 1 respiratory isolate were found. Infect Control Hosp Epidemiol 2017;1-4.

OBJECTIVE To describe the investigation and control of a cluster of Serratia marcescens bacteremia in a 505-bed tertiary-care center. METHODS Cluster cases were defined as all patients with S. marcescens bacteremia between March 2 and April 7, 2014, who were found to have identical or related blood isolates determined by molecular typing with pulsed-field gel electrophoresis. Cases were compared using bivariate analysis with controls admitted at the same time and to the same service as the cases, in a 4:1 ratio...
