Nosocomial Infection Prevention

Maximum protection against risk of infection

Medical advances expose patients to various risks, including the risk of infection. To guarantee the safety and quality of care, the American Hospital of Paris has a Nosocomial Infection Prevention Committee (CLIN).

What are nosocomial infections?

Infections contracted in a healthcare establishment are called “nosocomial infections”. No matter how strenuously the hospital works to prevent these infections, there is always some risk. This is why prevention is so important.

Nosocomial Infection Prevention Committee (CLIN)

The American Hospital of Paris has had a Nosocomial Infection Prevention Committee (CLIN) for more than 30 years. The CLIN makes recommendations to the various care teams. These recommendations comply with American and French infection safety standards.

The Hospital also has an operational hygiene unit. This unit participates in surveys organized by the Coordinating Committee for Nosocomial Infection Prevention (C-CLIN Paris Nord).

Patients predisposed or exposed to infectious risks

If you are particularly at-risk because of your disease and/or the procedure you have undergone, the doctor in charge of your hospitalization will explain these risks to you.

If you contract a nosocomial infection while you are hospitalized, your doctor will tell you about it and will explain the prescribed treatment you may need to continue after you leave the hospital.
