    Objectives To create safe working conditions and prevent nosocomial infections in ARTD, it is necessary to reconstruct the wards for treatment of MDR-TB in ARTD for the intensive phase of treatment.
    The following infection control measures are intended to be taken in MDR TB wards:
    Administrative level:
  • Prompt separation of patients according to bacterioexcretion is being done at present.
    Environmental level:
  • A combined extract-and-input ventilation system will be reconstructed. Two separate ventilation systems will be created: one for the MDR department, another for the rest departments of ARTD.
  • A more detailed engineering plan of reconstruction will be presented later (in July of 2003, after the training course in infection control for the specialists of ARTD and of the State Center for Sanitary-and-epidemiologic Inspection organized CDC).
  • All MDR TB wards are planned to be provided with ultraviolet lamps (as is planned for all TB wards)
    Personal respiratory protection:
  • The use of personal respirators or special masks which filter droplet nuclei is planned in all MDR TB wards with the use of 3M 9320, FFP2S.
