Preventing the spread of infectious pathogens.
Every day, frontline leaders are challenged to prevent the spread of infectious pathogens. There are many ways pathogens can cause infections. Through contaminated surfaces, air and water. By touch and bodily contact, and through invasive procedures.
According to the World Health Organization, Hospital Acquired Infection (HAI) rates are higher in Canada compared to other developed nations: 1 in 12. Medline Canada is committed to reducing HAIs by helping hospitals shift thinking through education, process optimization, and product quality.
Medline Canada supports a perspective shift from Infections being inevitable. Instead, some could be prevented.
Ownership and understanding the vital role care practice plays in preventing HAIs across your organization is key. Medline's 3-zone strategy covers the entire perimeter of risk. Emphasizing people and process to increase safety.
Our clinical support, process-improvement programs, and products are specifically designed to drive compliance. Medline Canada’s goal is to increase prevention of the 3 most common causes of HAIs (accounting for approximately 80% of all HAI rates):
- Central line-associated bloodstream infection (CLABSI)
- Catheter-associated urinary tract infection (CA-UTI)
- Surgical site infection (SSI)
