Infection Prevention and Control Program in Premier Bintaro Hospital

Infection Prevention and Control Program in Premier Bintaro Hospital

Hospitals must strive to improve service quality in all fields on an ongoing basis. One form of this effort is the hospital’s attention to infection prevention and control. As part of Ramsay Sime Darby’s Health Care, Premier Bintaro Hospital demonstrated its commitment to infection prevention and control by participating in an audit of the HICMR (Health Care Infection Control Management Resource) audit.

HICMR (Health Care Infection Control Management Resources) is an international audit body and consultant for infection prevention and control (PPI) based in Melbourne, Australia. HICMR is the largest provider that continues to be consistently involved in the PPI program. HICMR globally continues to maintain its commitment and become a leader in providing recommendations and consultations for PPI program management both at the strategy, managerial and operational levels.

Private services at the hospital include patients, hospital staff and visitors. These three components are at risk of contracting an infectious disease. Hospitals in principle are places for medical care and care for inpatients, but often people in hospitals (patients, hospital staff, and visitors) are at risk of contracting the disease due to exposure to various sources of disease. This condition is called a nosocomial infection or known as “Infection Acquired Hospital” (HAI).

The hospital must control the Infected Acquired Hospital (HAI) because it will affect the healing process of the patient. Keeping a safe and clean environment following the required standards requires strong commitment and low costs. Various efforts have been made, among others, by maintaining the air circulation system, maintaining the cleanliness of the rooms and all equipment used by patients when hospitalised. Thus patients, medical personnel, nurses and medical support staff and people who come to the hospital can be protected.

Premier Bintaro Hospital applied high standards in preventing and controlling infections in hospitals. Premier Bintaro Hospital consistently participates in the HICMR audit every year, followed by high commitment and responsibility from all staff to jointly make this program successful.

HICMR's audit this year, the Bintaro Premier Hospital managed to fulfil 3,316 standards from 3,468 possible standard scores, or about 96% of all existing standards. The following chart illustrates the achievement of the Premier Bintaro Hospital HICMR audit results from 2013 to 2018:
