Hospitals and homes for health care in California and Illinois have a surprisingly simple strategy to stop dangerous, antibiotic-resistant hyperboles that kill thousands of people every year: washing patients with special soap. $ 8 million from the federal government's disease control and prevention centers are held in 50 establishments in these two countries.

This new co-operation recognizes that super-teenagers do not remain isolated in a hospital or nursing home, but move quickly through the community, says Dr. John Jennifer, who runs the CDC office to investigate healthcare-acquired infections. "No health institution is an island," says Jennifer. "We are all in this complex network." “/>

At least 2 million people in the United States infect some kind of antibiotic-resistant bacteria every year, and about 23,000

People in hospitals are vulnerable to these bugs, and people in homes are particularly vulnerable. Up to 15% of hospital patients and 65% of the nursing home population have drug-resistant organisms, although not all of them will develop infection, says Dr. Susan Huang, an infectious disease specialist at the University of California at Irvine. ] "Superbots are scary and not cut," Huang says. Some of the most common bacteria in healthcare facilities are resistant to methicillin Staphylococcus aureus, or MRSA, and carbapenem resistant Enterobacteriaceae, or CRE, often referred to as "nightmare bacteria." E. coli [1959906] and Klebsiella pneumonia are two common microbes that can fall into this category when they become resistant to antibiotics known as carbapenems. CRE bacteria cause approximately 600 deaths each year, according to the CDC.

CREs are "predominantly distributed" among healthcare providers in the Chicago area, says Dr. Michael Lin, an infectious disease specialist at the Rush University Medical Center headed the CFC-funded efforts there. "If MRSA is hypersensitive, it's the extreme super super."

Containing dangerous bacteria is a challenge for hospitals and homes. As part of the CDC's efforts, doctors and health workers in Chicago and Southern California use the antimicrobial chlorhexidine soap that has proven to reduce infections when patients bathe with it.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention fund the project. in California, based in Orange County, where 36 hospitals and nursing homes use antiseptic washing, along with an iodine-based nose pad, on patients to stop the spread of lethal superfibers.

Although hospital intensive care units often rely on chlorhexidine to prevent infections, it is less commonly used for bathing in elderly homes. Chlorhexidine is also sold without prescription; The FDA noted in 2017 that it had caused rare but severe allergic reactions.

In Chicago, researchers are working with 14 nursing homes and long-term acute care hospitals where staff checks people for CRE bacteria when taken and bathes them daily.

The Chicago project, which began in 2017 and ends in September, includes a campaign to encourage hand washing and enhanced communication between hospitals for which patients carry drug-resistant organisms. Indeed, three quarters of US nursing homes received quotes about infection control issues for four years, according to Kaiser Health News, and facilities with repetitive quotations were almost never fined. Residents of the elderly home are often sent back to hospitals for infections.

In California, health officials carefully monitor CRE bacteria that are less prevalent there than elsewhere in the country and try to prevent CRE from arrest, said Dr. Matthew Zan, medical director of epidemiology at the Health Care Agency Orange County

"We do not have much time," says Zan. "Taking a chance to make a difference in the CRE trajectory is now really important."

The CDC-funded project in California is based in Orange County, where 36 hospitals and adult homes use antiseptic wash along with iodine pad . The goal is to prevent new people from getting drug-resistant bacteria and to keep those who already have bacteria on their skin or elsewhere to develop infections, says Huang, who runs the project.

Juan started the project by exploring how patients moved between different hospitals and homes in Orange County – they found that they were doing so much than previously thought. This is a key issue, she says, "What can we do to protect our patients, but to protect them when they start moving anywhere?"
