Nosocomial infection in the neonatal intensive care unit.

 Limchiu R

All patients admitted from July 1, 1989 to April 1, 1990 to the neonatal intensive care unit with CBC, blood, urine and tracheal aspirate culture and sensitivities when intubated are reviewed Regular CBC every three days are done. Repeat cultures are done for signs of infection. When organisms are cultured from a previously negative or new ones are detected, nosocomial infection is confirmed. These organisms were tabulated and ranked as to frequency of occurrence. Associated initial clinical informations are analyzed as to possible known etiologies and correlated with these organisms and their sensitivity pattern to determine any predictive usefulness in early control of nosocomial spread of infection in the NICU.
