Description

The Need Staphylococcus aureus infections are an increasingly serious public health issue Colonized patients at risk for serious complications include surgical, trauma, burn and dialysis patients: S. aureus colonized patients are up to 9 times more likely to develop surgical site infections than non-carriers S. aureus is the major cause of access infections and bacteremia in dialysis patients Carriage is the major risk factor for infection with S. aureus in dialysis patients Up to 93% of nosocomial S. aureus infections are caused by a patient’s own flora SA and MRSA infections are associated with increases in length of hospital stay, costs, morbidity, and mortality Nasal carriage of S. aureus and self-infection of wounds in ICU/Burn patients is well documented The Solution Rapid and accurate detection of colonization facilitates targeted infection control practices: Optimize pre-admission workflow and counseling Enables measures to reduce endogenous infection risk, including decolonization Supports measures to reduced exogenous infection risk, including barrier/contact precautions Aligns with infection control strategies as outlined by SCIP and SHEA/IDSA Impact Impact of Pre-Surgical Screening on Post-Operative Infection Rates S. aureus can lead to more serious complications, especially in orthopaedic and cardiovascular procedures leading to poor patient outcomes which prolong hospital stay and costs. Impact on Resource Utilization and Hospital Efficiencies Pre-surgical screening in combination with decolonization has been shown to reduce post-operative infection rates by up to 60%
