Interventional patient hygiene model: Infection control and nursing share responsibility for patient safety

, : Interventional patient hygiene model: Infection control and nursing share responsibility for patient safety. American Journal of Infection Control 36(1): 59-62

Interventional patient hygiene (IPH) has been defined as a comprehensive evidence-based intervention and measurement model for reducing the bioburden of both the patient and health care worker. The components of IPH are hand hygiene, oral care, skin care/antisepsis, and catheter site care. This practice form will provide evidence-based information for each of the components of IPH model and provide a strategy for the development, implementation, and monitoring of IPH protocols.

We establish a mechanical injury model for articular cartilage to assess the sensitivity of diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) in detecting cartilage damage early in time. Mechanical injury provides a more realistic model of cartilage degradation comp...
