Healthcare Acquired Superbug Infections on the Rise
Concern is growing worldwide regarding the number of patients acquiring superbug infections during their hospital confinement. Healthcare associated Infections cause 16 million extra days of hospital stay in Europe and 37,000 attributed deaths. They also contribute to an additional 110,000 deaths every year. The financial losses estimated at approximately €7 billion. In the United States, over 100,000 deaths were attributed to Healthcare associated Infections and the annual economic impact is over US$ 6.5 billion
What are Healthcare-Associated Infections?
Healthcare-Associated Infections (HCAIs) are those infections that develop as a direct result of any contact in a healthcare setting whilst patients are being treated for illness and infections. They occur in hospitals and in the community and affect both patients and healthcare workers. They are normally associated with developed countries but the problem is spreading rapidly and is also being recognised in developing countries.
There are many causes of the spreading of HCAI’s, but they are most commonly caused by the contaminated hands of healthcare workers and contaminated medical devices, The failure of staff to comply with local policies, procedures and guidelines and the use of ineffective disinfectants and sanitizers.
Alcohol based products such as hand gels are also aiding the growth of these superbugs allowing HCAI’s to spread out of control.
The use of conventional disinfectants and alcohol hand gels has failed to adequately address the problem. Genie Miracle(tm) disinfectants and handgel (which does not contain alcohol) have been shown to be effective against HCAIs. Advanced Hygiene Systems has been awarded distribution rights for the new Genie range of miracle disinfectants.
The effects of HCAI on patients
Every year at least 300,000 patients develop an HCAI in the UK. These infections are often difficult to treat and they can complicate illnesses, cause distress to patients and their family, and in some cases may even lead to death.
If a patient contracts an HCAI, it may:
- Make their existing medical condition worse,
- Make their stay in hospital longer,
- Cause them pain, depression and stress,
- Reduce their chances of successful recovery.
The European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) estimated that 4,131,000 patients are affected by approximately 4,544,100 episodes of HCAI every year in Europe.
Some common HCAIs
- MRSA In recent years there has been a lot of media publicity surrounding drug-resistant infections such as Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA). Many newspapers have referred to MRSA as the 'Super Bug' or 'Killer Bug' and sometimes focused on drug-resistant infections as they were the only HCAI.
- Clostridium difficile (C Diff) is a common cause of diarrhoea in hospitals. C Diff is very costly to treat and the conventional methods of eradication are potentially harmful to hospital works and patients alike.
- Acinetobacter causes HCAI particularly in patients in intensive care units.
- Norovirus causes sickness and vomiting.

New Sanitization products claim to Kill H5N1 Super Virus
H5N1 Avian Bird Flu is a type of influenza virus that is hosted by birds, but strains of avian influenza virus has already affected pigs, horses, seals, whales and humans.
Avian Influenza can survive for considerable lengths of time outside of the host and birds are infected through contact with other birds, vehicles and equipment and personnel travelling between farms, markets and abattoirs.
Precautionary requirements include cleaning and disinfection of premises and the establishment of a Biosecurity barrier to help prevent spread of disease is essential. This includes the disinfecting of all surfaces but also it is essential to prevent the spread even further by using a suitable hand gel and soap. Unfortunately, alcohol based gels have shown that they do not necessarily kill the virus.
Few people realize that H5N1 Bird Flu is more deadly to humans than the much-publicized H1N1 Swine Flu, which kills few people. Recently a group of influenza experts asked for the research into the virus be extended as deaths continue to rise.
There are an increasing number of human fatalities worldwide from exposure to avian flu. Many authorities consider it is only a matter of time before bird flu will change (mutate) into a form that is even more highly infectious for humans and that spreads easily from person to person. If this happens, a pandemic flu outbreak would occur. There are already strains of the Avian (Bird) Flu such as H5N2 and H5N3 and concerns over mutations of the influenza virus.
Across the world H5N1 remains deadly to the food industry with tens of thousands of chickens being culled. This has now become almost a daily news headline on Google where complete poultry farms are decimated including the all-important egg-production. The map below shows where deaths of birds and humans have occurred.
