Date: 2021-05-27   Views: 1913

According to news report, in April 2021, an infection outbreak occurred in the Department of Neonatology, Dongsheng Department, Ordos Central Hospital, Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region. It has been identified that the incident was an outbreak of infection in a medical institution caused by Enteroaggregative Ecoli (EAEC), which resulted in 9 neonatal infections and 3 deaths.


Newborn infections have always been the hardest hit area for nosocomial infections. On the one hand, the neonatal immune system has not yet fully developed, and on the other hand, some newborns often require more invasive operations. Take the hospital infection incident in Ordos Central Hospital as an example. The official notification result is that enteroadhesive Escherichia coli (EAEC) spreads horizontally. Escherichia coli is a very common bacteria in the intestines, most of which are non-pathogenic bacteria. Some are conditional pathogenic bacteria, such as curing diseases under certain conditions (decreased immunity). The occurrence of the Erdos neonatal hospital infection incident was that the newborn was infected with intestinal adhesive E. coli in the ICU, and the autoimmunity was weak, which caused the disease.


Beside the improper infection prevention protocols found in the investigation, new technologies with less intervention of huma errors are required for daily disinfection routine in hospitals. 


BEST H2O2 Fogger robot may be very helpful in this case as it adopts cutting-edge robotic technology and H2O2 atomizing technology to disinfect the whole room air and surfaces automatically.
