Infection rates


Infection Prevention at Blackrock ClinicInfection and Prevention Control is crucial to positive outcomes for patients at Blackrock Clinic. All patients especially those at risk are monitored upon admission for infection and in-hospital acquired infections are continually monitored by procedure and by surgeon.

There is a downward trend for all infections in the last three years due to protocols and initiatives set in place by the hospital. We are proud to report that all rates within Blackrock Clinic are exceptionally low. The levels are substantially below the benchmark set by The International Quality Indicator Project® (IQIP) which assists healthcare organisations in identifying opportunities for improvement in patient care.

A further section can be found on the site entitled ‘Infection Prevention and Control’. This is devoted to giving you more detail on specific statistics around procedures and infections.
