The audit inaccuracy rate decreased from 7.82% to 3.41%, the infection density decreased from 10.06 ‰ to 7.60 ‰, and the average cost of medical supply was reduced 3,580 NT / month. Antibiotics use DDD decreased from 15g per person per day to 10g, the use of the amount of drugs accounted of hospital expenses from 46%to 30%.Infection control is an ongoing task for the intensive care unit, from establishment of the concept, supervision, audit to habits developed, from cleaning workers to department directors, whether it is a brief contact with the radiologist, pharmacist, dietitian, or physician, respiratory therapist, or close contact with the 24-hour care staff, all health care deliverer need to work together to provide a high quality and safety medical environment.
