The study was conducted in general acute care hospitals in Korea. In 2012, we surveyed the infection control activities in hospital which operate the infection control organization by the law. To measure the infection control activities of hospitals, we applied the the Infection Control Assessment Tool (ICAT) 2009 restrictively to the surveyed data.
We calculated the infection control activity scores in the indexes of infection control infrastructure, surveillance, compliance of guidelines, education, antibiotics use and indicator monitoring activities. Finally we analyze the influence factors to the total activity scores.
