Abstract

In 1990, a survey of recommended infection control practices in ICUs was carried out in 11 European countries. At the European level, 1005 ICUs returned the questionnaire (response rate = 61.2%), while in Italy only 129 ICUs out of 289 answered (response rate = 45%). The survey showed that the diffusion of recommended infection control practices in Italian ICUs was similar to other European countries, even if infection control resources at the hospital level were scarce: a hospital infection control program was launched ad necessary resources were available in only 14% of the responding Italian ICUs.
