Infectious Diseases Treatment in Thane

The infectious diseases treatment at Jupiter Hospital is guided by a set of evidence-based techniques known as Care Bundles. These techniques collectively improve patient outcomes. To ensure the highest standards of care, we offer a competency-based training program for all personnel involved in patient care, both directly and indirectly.

Key Initiatives for Infection Control:

  • Hand Hygiene: We promote the preferential use of alcohol-based hand rub (ABHR) as per WHO guidelines. Monthly monitoring and compliance audits ensure the effectiveness of this practice. We educate healthcare providers on the importance and correct procedure for hand hygiene.
  • Prevention Of Ventilator-Associated Pneumonia (VAP): Our respiratory therapy team provides comprehensive care and infection prevention practices for ventilated patients, including daily assessments of ventilator needs.
  • Prevention Of Catheter-Associated Urinary Tract Infection (CAUTI): Physicians and nurses employ evidence-based clinical care to reduce CAUTI rates through strict aseptic catheter insertion techniques.
  • Prevention Of Central Line-Associated Bloodstream Infection (CLABSI): A daily checklist is used for assessing patients with central venous catheters to ensure proper insertion and maintenance as part of our Care bundle.
  • Personal Protective Equipment (PPE): We provide necessary supplies for personal protective equipment and educate staff on their proper use, in line with Standard and Transmission-based Precautions.
  • Injection Safety: Safe injection practices are followed for the preparation and administration of parenteral medications, ensuring patient safety.
  • Prevention Of Surgical Site Infection: We follow CDC guidelines, providing follow-up care for patients even after they leave the hospital and come to the OPD for doctor visits. We also highlight the contact person for patient ease.
  • Environmental Cleaning: We emphasize fundamental principles for infection prevention and waste management in the hospital setting.
  • Device Reprocessing: Our hospital follows comprehensive protocols for reprocessing critical devices and strictly adheres to a single-use policy.
  • Systems To Detect, Prevent, And Respond To Healthcare-Associated Infections And Multidrug-Resistant Organisms (MDROs): We have rigorous systems in place for the detection, prevention, and response to healthcare-associated infections and MDROs.
  • Biomedical Waste Management: We adhere to stringent practices for the storage, segregation, transport, and disposal of hospital waste in accordance with National Guidelines.
  • Separates Room For Infected Patients: Our dedicated Intensive Care Unit features isolated rooms for infected patients to prevent the spread of infections to other patients.
