Abstract

Background: The prevalence of chronic diseases such as Chronic Kidney Disease has increased. Given the complications of infection in hemodialysis patients, the aim of this study was to determine the rate of infection in vascular access of hemodialysis patients in Ilam city. Material and methods: This study is a retrospective study that was done by referring to hospital records and the statistics data available in infection control office at Shahid Mostafa Khomeini Hospital in Ilam from 2017 to 2018. Thus, the necessary documentation on the prevalence of CVC-related infections was obtained from a hospital infection control expert. Patients' secrets were kept, and Data were analyzed using SPSS 16 software and frequency tables, averages and graphs were used. Result: In total, 76 patients with CVC entered the study, of which the prevalence of catheter-related infections was 21 patients. Conclusion: The rate of infection in these patients has been considerable, so appropriate interventions to reduce it are recommended. Causes of infection have to review and treatment staffs receive training to reduce the causes of infection. Since hemodialysis patients have frequent referrals to the hospital, there is a good basis for their education in CVC care.
