  • Acinetobacter - the trojan horse of infection control? [Journal Article]
  • JHJ Hosp Infect 2019; 102(1):45-53
  • Teare L, Martin N, … Hoffman P
  • CONCLUSIONS: In an outbreak where contact precautions and environmental cleaning are optimal, it is important to give careful consideration to other mechanisms of spread. If there is a failure to do this, it is likely that the true causes of transmission will not be addressed and the problem will recur. It is recommended that burn theatres within burn facilities should be designed to operate at negative pressure; this is the opposite of normal operating theatre ventilation. Where showers are used, both the shower head and the hose should be changed after a patient with a resistant organism. The role of non-contact disinfection (e.g. hydrogen peroxide dispersal) should be reconsidered, and constant vigilance should be given to any 'trojan horse' item in the room.
  • Reducing Lead and Silica Dust Exposures in Small-Scale Mining in Northern Nigeria. [Journal Article]
  • AWAnn Work Expo Health 2019 Jan 07; 63(1):1-8
  • Gottesfeld P, Tirima S, … Nota MM
  • CONCLUSIONS: This pilot project has been successful in working cooperatively with miners to provide them with the necessary information and tools to reduce exposures in mining and processing, and minimize off-site contamination. As silica dust is a significant risk factor for silicosis and tuberculosis (TB), this intervention could provide public health benefits to small-scale mining communities even in areas without significant lead concentrations in the ore. Significant reductions in respirable silica and lead exposures are feasible in low-resource, small-scale mining communities.
