Point prevalence survey of healthcare-associated infections and antimicrobial use in European acute care hospitals 2011-2012

surveillance report

​In 2011–2012, 29 EU/EEA Member States and Croatia participated in the first EU-wide, ECDC-coordinated point prevalence survey of healthcare-associated infections and antimicrobial use in acute care hospitals. Data from a total of 273 753 patients in 1149 hospitals were submitted to ECDC in order to estimate the prevalence of healthcare-associated infections in European hospitals.

This report presents the findings of that survey, together with data on antimicrobial use in those hospitals, and makes some proposals for ways to maximise the prevention of infections and antimicrobial resistance in European healthcare institutions.
