More opportunities found for respiratory infections to spread among staff in EDs
from Medical Xpress
After studying social contact between patients and staff in a busy emergency department for one year, researchers at Emory University have learned more about the spread of infection and why prevention strategies are so important. The researchers looked at three types of interaction — patient-to-patient contact, patient-to-staff contact and staff-to-staff contact. The most common type of contact was staff-to-staff, and thus staff may be more likely to spread infections to other staff.
