Point prevalence survey of healthcare-associated infections and antimicrobial use in European long-term care facilities. May–September 2010
To quantify the magnitude of healthcare-associated infections in long-term care facilities at the European level, ECDC provided funding for the Healthcare-Associated infections in Long-Term care facilities (HALT) project, which developed a sustainable methodology based on a repeated Point Prevalence Survey design to study their prevalence and to explore related infection prevention and control structures and process indicators in the same group of facilities.
The first survey was organised between May to September 2010, and this report documents its findings.
