"Gram-negative bacilli commonly encountered in healthcare settings include species such as Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Acinetobacter spp. and Stenotrophomonas maltophilia, and species belonging to the Enterobacteriaceae family, such as Escherichia coli, Klebsiella pneumoniae, and Enterobacter cloacae. Recent events indicate an increasing occurrence of antimicrobial resistance in Gram-negative bacteria. The carbapenem group of antimicrobials is a safe and generally effective treatment for severe Gram-negative bacterial infections when resistance to other classes of antimicrobials is present.

Healthcare worker influenza immunization rates represents the influenza immunization rates for healthcare workers within the Nova Scotia Health Authority and the IWK. The rates are collected and reported annually by the health authorities. Healthcare workers who get the flu vaccine provide a layer of protection to themselves and to patients from getting influenza and help prevent influenza outbreaks. Measuring, monitoring, and reporting the rate of healthcare worker influenza immunization can assist hospitals with evaluating the effectiveness of their occupational health/infection prevention and control programs and explore ways to increase the number of healthcare workers who get the flu shot.
