Answer

Other suggested measures to prevent nosocomial infections include the following:

  • Remove medical devices (eg, catheters, tubes) when no longer needed.

  • Use nonalkalinizing gastric cytoprotective agents.

  • Place intubated patients in a semirecumbent position.

  • When possible, consider decreasing the duration and intensity of immunosuppression in patients who are immunocompromised.
