|UNCERTAINTY: What are the alternatives to single room isolation of people with antibiotic resistant bacteria so that the care of such people can be improved? (Priority 24)
|JLA question ID
|Currently, single room isolation is the main method used to decrease the spread of the harmful antibiotic resistant bacteria in the hospital. However, this may cause infrequent monitoring of patients and can have an psychological effect on patients who are isolated. There is uncertainty as to whether there are any alternate solutions to avoid single room isolation, but achieve the purpose of decreasing transmission of infections.
