They already have nosocomial infections already homes


Microbiology professionals from the Argentinean Association have emphasized the abuse of antibiotics

Early infections caused by bacterial antibiotics are not exclusive medical facilities, published by the Argentine Antimicrobial Society (AAM), and "already in geriatrics and even hospitals in homes".

This was the VI Society of Bacteriology, Myology and Clinical Parasitology (Sadebac) of the Argentinean Society. In congress It is part of AAM and it is a concern in the scientific community, "the resistance rate is very high for the use of conventional antibiotic treatments".

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), 700,000 people die every year against microbial resistance (AMR), until they reach 10 millions by 2050 until "unless they act."

"These hospital-related infections, which are called internal hospitals, are closely linked to the use of medical devices that were not previously used," explains Jaime Kovensky Pup's biochemist and a clinical bacterial specialist.

The expert and coordinator of the Subcommittee on Antimicrobial Sadebac said that "medicine has become very advanced, so that there are currently more invasive (transplanted, oncologically) patients with invasive procedures that lead to inevitable infections."

He also emphasized that "the most attention-oriented issues are a low membership rate for good healthcare workers, and Argentina is not over 30%."

"The biggest problem in cleaning your hands is the transmission of bacteria in a horizontal way," said biochemist Adriana Sucari, Vice President of AAM and President of Sadebace.

"Because doctors, nurses, kinesiologists, and healthcare workers help a patient with a resistant bacterium, they can spread to the next patient if their hands do not cleanse each other."

Two specialists also agree that "essential" is the rate of infection related to health care, nowadays in hospitals, elderly homes and in hospitalization patients.

"Each medical organization designs and establishes a surveillance program for the use of search and horizontal carriers for multidrug bacteria to implement measures to address this transmission from one patient to another, using objects like health workers and stethoscopes and thermometers," Kovensky suggested.


The biochemist reminded that antibiotic resistance against antibiotics is linked to "abuse or abuse". "In 2016," he said, "the resistance to antimicrobials was a health problem aimed at the President of the United Nations, for the first time, the State leaders committed to a coordinated strategy for a broader structure, human, animal and agricultural health."

"Antibiotics should be prescribed for doctors and the prescription should be submitted to a pharmacy. There are studies showing that breach of this rule in the province of Buenos Aires reaches 80%. In most cases, this sale without prescription responds to auto-medication behavior, because antibiotic is in vain, because it is viral , it produces bacterial resistance in the infectious focus or in the gut microbes that live, "he said.

"We need to take care of our ecological microbiological flora if we want to advance microbial resistance," added Kovensky.
