Other countries are adopting the zero infection compliance measures such as the notable work to defeat Hospital Acquired Infections (HAIs). HAI awareness and prevention is evident internationally in Canada, the UK, Japan, the Netherlands, Scandinavia, and Brazils. In Thailand author Anucha Apisarnthanarak, MD, devised an action plan in the hospital’s three Intensive Care Units (ICUs). The action plan consists of using gloves and gowns during all patient care and handwashing, screening for pandrug-resistant Acinetobacter baumannii before and seven days after ICU admittance, and a cohort of colonized or infected patients, sanitizing surfaces with ammonia and detergent and encouraged compliance using educational training sessions, wall posters, and monthly meetings. Ms. New is a firm believer in educating the HCO and patients about Health Care related illness. Raising awareness rallies everyone together to move in the same direction. As viewers learn that nosocomial infection is a public safety issue, they might be more apt to make changes. HCOs have many tools at their disposal to raise awareness. For example, an HCO can advertise infographics in high traffic areas of the HCO. Furthermore, organizations could create a public announcement advertised on the web or television. Also, a campaign launch of collateral items for HCO staff to that encourages sanitation practice. Common everyday objects such as hand sanitizer, water bottles, hand soaps, and disinfectant bottles could foster healthy hygiene. The collateral items could display a catch phrase “hand sanitation saves lives” to compliment the wordmark and monogram.

Infection control practices are necessary to have a well-run HCO. It is possible for an HCO to operate at zero infection and zero noncompliance. However, it takes hard work and dedication from all HCO staff to arrive at a high standard of healthcare. In the general hospitals are taking charge and making a difference to reduce illness and death for patients and HCO staff. Ms. New implore anyone who is in healthcare to share the risks and dangers of nosocomial infection with their HCO to inform and educate cohorts. It is never too late to improve infection control policy. Change can be hard, but it is necessary for growth and development. The moment the nation stops reaching for knowledge and truth, they terminate cognitive and physical growth; it is inevitable the population regress and dies.
