During 2009, an estimated 200,000 Hospital Acquired Infections (HAI), at a prevalence rate of 6 to 8 per cent, were reported by the Australian Commission of Safety and Quality in Healthcare (ACSQHC). Being a developed nation, the incidence rates of HAI are higher and hence a coordinated nation-wide approach for the prevention and control of HAI was considered a priority to ensure patient safety and reduce the huge strain on the health system. Currently, there is no systematic Australia-wide approach to the measurement of patient harm caused by or associated with HAI.

New analysis from Frost & Sullivan (medicaldevices.frost.com), Hospital-acquired Infection Incidence - Trends in Australia, finds that an estimated two million bed days are lost due to HAI and this is likely to reduce by 2015 as a result of the measures initiated by the government to prevent infections.

"Different practices and guidelines are followed in each state as there are no national guidelines or standard definitions," says Frost & Sullivan Consultant Poornima Srinivasan. "Although standard surveillance is available for HAI, there is no national coordinating agency or commission like the National Nosocomial Infections Surveillance System in the United States."

However, the Government of Australia is coming up with measures of mandatory reporting and transparency in reporting HAI by both public and private hospitals.

"As the government comes up with guidelines and protocols for prevention and control of infections, industry participants in the infection control market comprising disinfectants, gels, and scrubs can utilise the opportunity to establish their presence in the market," says Srinivasan. "This can be accomplished by working together with the health services and influencers in the market."

As a result of the recent initiatives on hand hygiene measures, the use of hand rub has already increased drastically in hospitals over the last two years. With the establishment of ACSQHC and the initiatives on hand hygiene, most hospitals had significant reduction in methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) rates as well.

Going forward, Australia is expected to experience a drastic reduction in infection rates between 2013 and 2015 due to measures taken by ACSQHC and national streamlining with proper definition, surveillance, reporting and feedback measures.
