Abstract

After studying abroad in Ireland, infection control rates were compared to that of the USA.Through experiences with Irish nursing faculty and nurses, we learned about, as well as observed, the differing and innovative methods for infection control. The clinical differences between each country were analyzed alongside healthcare associated infections. The goals of this project are to shed light on the variability of infection control approaches from the USA and Ireland and how these procedures affect the actual rates of infection in each country.
