Infections and antibiotics in private residences – compilation of results from the Swedish HALT 2023 program — Public Health Agency

The report is a 2023 compilation of care-associated infections, antibiotic use and risk factors in people living in private residences in Sweden (Swedish HALT). The purpose of this compilation is to support and stimulate high-quality local and regional systematic action on the prevention of healthcare-associated infections and the responsible use of antibiotics in municipal healthcare.

144 municipalities and 1,809 units comprising 20,715 care recipients participated in the survey. In this year's survey, the percentage of care recipients with a care-associated infection was 1.5 percent. This means that the downward trend of VRI incidence in recent years has been broken. The percentage of care recipients receiving antibiotic therapy is the highest recorded since HALT measurement began. The levels found in the HALT measurement are consistent with the changes in antibiotic prescribing that society as a whole has experienced in recent years.

Primarily, we deal with you as a medically responsible nurse in municipal health and care, operations manager and staff in private accommodation. We also address those working locally or regionally in quality development, patient safety, health care hygiene and infection control, as well as those who are decision makers.
