Infection Control Team (ICT) rounds including health care professionals including infection control physician, nurse, pharmacist and microbiological technologist are necessary to assess the problems of nosocomial infection control. Eighty ICT rounds using check lists were performed every week from July 2010 to December 2011 in our university hospital and 1557 important areas were identified. The most frequently identified areas were washing or sterilization of medical tools (17.1%), followed by insufficienct standard precautions (16.6%), needle stabbing precautions (13.4%), contact precautions (10.5%), or safekeeping of medical equipment (10.3%). ICT rounds can identify solutions to many problems with nosocomial infection control and suggest improvements for on-site workers or hospital management.
