Background: In this report, we present the annual data of the intensive care unit (ICU) module of the Korean National Healthcare-associated Infections Surveillance System (KONIS) from July 2016 through June 2017.Methods: We performed a prospective surveillance of healthcare-associated urinary tract infection (UTI), bloodstream infection (BSI), and pneumonia (PNEU) at 285 ICUs in 193 hospitals using KONIS surveillance system. Healthcare-associated infection (HAI) and device-associated infection rates were calculated as the numbers of infections per 1,000 patient-days (PD) and device-days (DD), respectively. Device utilization was calculated as a ratio of device days to patient days.Results: A total of 3,989 HAIs were found during the study period; 1,241 UTIs (1,189 cases were urinary catheter-associated), 1,757 BSIs (1,481 were central line-associated), and 991 PNEUs (480 were ventilator-associated). The rate of urinary catheter-associated UTIs (CAUTI) was 1.01 cases per 1,000 DD (95% confidence interval [CI], 0.95–1.07) and urinary catheter utilization ratio was 0.85 (95% CI, 0.849–0.851). These were higher than the data of the previous year, 0.88/1,000 DD (95% CI, 0.82-0.95) and 0.84 (95% CI 0.839-0.841), respectively. The rate of central line-associated BSIs was 2.23/1,000 DD (95% CI, 2.12–2.35) while the central line utilization ratio was 0.48 (95% CI, 0.479–0.481). The rate of ventilator-associated PNEUs was 1.00/1,000 DD (95% CI, 0.91–1.09) while the ventilator utilization ratio was 0.35 (95% CI, 0.349–0.351). Conclusion: The overall HAI rate was similar to that of the previous year but the rate of CAUTI increased.
