CCIH aims not only to prevent and fight infection
Thus favoring the whole community, but also to protect the hospital and clinical staff. In a health unit, CCIH is a base for all professionals who work directly with patients in order to prevent and control hospital infection and its likely consequences (CHI, 2008; CAVALLINI, 2005).
The CCIHs of institutions play an important role in analyzing and determining the cause or culprit in the case of IH (ANTONY, 2000).
- The annihilation of the task and its etiology and installation impossible conditions of IH Man in imbalance in the disease process.
- Therefore, prevention and reduction have been shown to be practicable in various cases and situations, as already demonstrated in hospital practice (CHI, 2008; CAVALLINI, 2005).
- The CCIHs works with an epidemiological surveillance policy of the IH set, related to health and the prevention of occupational hazards (MOSCOVICI, 2007).
The establishment and functioning of the CCIH conceive a progress in the organization of the hospital for the reduction of multiple problems, such as the need to reduce and control the rates of infections, which have led to the application of preventive, educational and epidemiological control, which, through a process of collective awareness, to bring the infection rates to acceptable limits (ZAVASCKI; Cross, 2005).
Therefore, it is necessary to study and determine the CCIH, collective and institutional form, monitoring activities, training and bureaucratic measures (control and routing) that cover health professionals and all those who provide hospital care (ODELET, 2007).
As for the strong evidence of the effectiveness and efficiency of infection monitoring and control activities, there is no study that shows exactly which methods and programs should be implemented in the implementation, monitoring and control of nosocomial infections.
The behavior modification, so necessary in this context, focuses on the double.
It takes theoretical and practical testing and the absorption and application of preventive measures, adequate assistance is imperative. The formation of professional habits and not just the theory of knowledge, in the objective to be achieved within the CCIH (PITET, 2005; PUCCINI, 2008).
Thus, the problem of hospital-acquired infections also requires changes to the government order, such as the design of a policy for maximum effectiveness of infection control, which goes beyond the establishment of legal and regulatory mechanisms for regulation, which embraces the population of service users, making them a participant in the process (TURRINI, 2002; PUCCINI, 2008).
We need to reflect on all the acceptable can collaborate in the strategic change of the current landscape that is exposed, such as: the introduction of the subject in the curricula of degree courses in the health sector; investment in the provision of postgraduate courses in infection control for healthcare professionals, especially outside large cities; legal guarantees on the recognition and professional autonomy of infection controllers; Revision of current legislation which aims to comply with effective prevention and control measures for public and private entities; investments in research, seminars and updates (COUTO, 2003; LENTZ, 2003).
