A hemodialysis room is the healthcare facility utmost demanding an infection control because dialysis patients have chronic serious underlying conditions and high risks of bloodborne infection due to a indwelling intravascular catheter, a frequent exposure to bloods or body fluids, and a blood transfusion as well as a hemodialysis room can be a mixing vessel to encounter both hospital-acquired pathogens and community-acquird pathogens. Therefore the Korean Society for Nosocomial Infection Control (KOSNIC) purposed to develop a guideline for the infection control in a hemodialysis room with support of Korean Center for Disease Control (KCDC). This guideline was composed of 11 chapters including vascular access control, dialysis water, microbiological and chemical monitoring of dialysis water and dialysates, components and passage of dialysates, maintenance of dialysis machines, disinfection, waste management, infection surveillance, aseptic techniques and standard precaution, environmental control, prevention of bloodborne infections and 5 appendices composing basic infection control techniques. This is the first official guideline approved by KOSNIC and KCDC of the infection control in a hemodialysis room in Korea. Here the guideline was published except appendices and entire guideline including those can be downloaded on hompages of KOSNIC (http://www.kosnic.org/) and KCDC (http//www.cdc.go.kr/).
