Résumé :

Infections are a significant source of illness and death in the long-term care (LTC) setting. It is estimated that between 1.6 million and 3.8 million infections occur annually among patients in LTC facilities. Infections account for up to half of all transfers from LTC facilities to hospitals and result in an estimated 150,000 - 300,000 hospital admissions annually. Numerous studies indicate that pneumonia, urinary tract infections, and skin and soft-tissue infections account for nearly 75% of all infections acquired in the LTC setting. This guideline focuses on management of the four most common types of infections occurring in long-term care - urinary tract, respiratory, gastrointestinal, and skin infections. The guideline also discusses infection control, colonization versus true infection, and antibiotic resistance in long-term care facilities.
