ABSTRACTIntroduction: in 2006, the surveillance activity associated with healthcare infections is logged at Hermanos Ameijeiras Hospital, for which general, specific and tracer indicators were designed. These are measured monthly and annually, and they are presented to the Committee for Prevention and Control of Infections associated with Health Care and to Board of Directors.
Objective: described the behavior of hospital infections associated with health care from 2006 to 2014.
Methods: a descriptive, observational, retrospective study. The study group consisted of all patients discharged from the hospital in the studied period (109,897 patients). For the primary data, the Galem System hospital statistics, registration of infections, the clinical records of infected patients, the results of microbiological studies of Galem system of Microbiology, and registration of death were reviewed.
Results: the rates of infections associated with health care in this hospital are comparable with those of, similar to that of countries with efficient control programs nosocomial infections international standards. The surgical wound infection is the most frequent in the years of epidemiological surveillance and although it does not coincide with the observations of others, it does with similar studies conducted in this institution in previous period.
Conclusions: infection of the surgical site is the most common of those associated with health care, common behavior of a hospital with surgical infections profile; the remaining three locations of the urinary tract infection, bloodstream infection and lower respiratory tract infection match the surveillance studies worldwide.
