Infeção vs. Dotação
Recortei a imagem seguinte do relatório do inquérito de prevalência de infeção nosocomial de âmbito nacional de 2010 (podem consultá-lo através do microsite do PNCI – link). Atentem!
There was a significant association between patient-to-nurse ratio and urinary tract infection (0.86; P = .02) and surgical site infection (0.93; P = .04). In a multivariate model controlling for patient severity and nurse and hospital characteristics, only nurse burnout remained significantly associated with urinary tract infection (0.82; P = .03) and surgical site infection (1.56; P < .01) infection. Hospitals in which burnout was reduced by 30% had a total of 6,239 fewer infections, for an annual cost saving of up to $68 million.
