"Individualise devices to cut Spanish HCV (hospital-acquired hepatitis C) rates":

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

Spanish hepatologists are calling for all instruments used to explore patients to be "individualised", in order to reduce the incidence of hospital-acquired hepatitis C (HCV) infections, according to El Pais. This is one of the recommendations to emerge from a study by the hepatology unit of Barcelona's Hospital Clinic, which found a 0.27% infection rate (Hepatology, January 2005). This could easily be reduced further if appropriate precautions were implemented, the authors concluded.
