National Surveillance of Bloodstream Infections in Belgian Hospitals

Introduction

Hospital-associated bloodstream infections are an important cause of morbidity and mortality. Due to their severity and their impact on the length of stay of a patient in the hospital, Sciensano (the former Scientific Institute of Public Health) started the national surveillance of bloodstream infections in Belgian hospitals in 1992. Bloodstream infections are recorded for the whole hospital on the basis of positive blood cultures.

Participation to this surveillance became mandatory in 2014 for a minimum duration of 3 months per year (Royal decree 27/01/2015).
