Point prevalence survey of healthcare-associated infections and antimicrobial use in European long-term care facilities. May–September 2010
To quantify the magnitude of healthcare-associated infections in long-term care facilities at the European level, ECDC provided funding for the Healthcare-Associated infections in Long-Term care facilities (HALT) project, which developed a sustainable methodology based on a repeated Point Prevalence Survey design to study their prevalence and to explore related infection prevention and control structures and process indicators in the same group of facilities.
