Infectious risk moments: a novel, human factors-informed approach to infection prevention


Clack, Lauren; Schmutz, Jan; Manser, Tanja; Sax, Hugo (2014). Infectious risk moments: a novel, human factors-informed approach to infection prevention. Infection Control and Hospital Epidemiology, 35(8):1051-1055.

Abstract

We pilot tested a novel human factors-informed concept to identify infectious risk moments (IRMs) that occur with high frequency during routine intensive care. Following 30 observation-hours, 28 potential IRMs related to hand hygiene, gloves, and objects were expert rated. A comprehensive IRM inventory may provide valuable taxonomy for research, training, and intervention.
