Healthcare-associated infection in long term care facilities
National Prevalence Surveys on Healthcare Associated Infections and Antibiotic use in Irish Long-Term Care Facilities
In 2010, 2011 and 2013, Irish long-term care facilities participated in a national prevalence survey of healthcare-associated infections and antibiotic use in long-term care (HALT). The HALT survey will be repeated in Ireland and across Europe from May 2016. Further information on the 2016 HALT survey and the reports of the previous HALT surveys can be found below.
