Description:
In May 2013, 9,318 residents in 190 Irish long‐term care facilities (LTCF) were included in a European point prevelance survey (PPS) of healthcare‐associated infections (HCAI) and antimicrobial use. The survey is also known as the HALT survey. This is the national report for Ireland. Aims of the HALT survey 1. To calculate the prevalence of healthcare‐associated infections (HCAI) in residents of Irish LTCF 2. To calculate the prevalence of and indications for antimicrobial use in Irish LTCF 3. To provide the Irish Government, Department of Health, Health Service Executive, the managers, doctors and nurses caring for residents in all of the LTCF that took part, with information for action: to reduce the numbers of residents who develop HCAI and to influence positive antimicrobial stewardship practices in LTCF 4. To provide residents, their families and members of the public with more information about HCAI in Ireland and which types of infections are most commonly seen in Irish LTCF
