Pursuant to a congressional request, GAO compared military
hospitals' infection control programs to similar efforts in the
Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and nonfederal hospitals. GAO
found that: (1) service guidelines did not include GAO-recommended
elements, but military hospitals used most of the 56 basic elements
considered essential to infection control programs; (2) military
hospitals' infection control practitioners initiated element use;
(3) the services provided military practitioners limited guidance
and direction; (4) the extent of infection control program element
use in military hospitals was similar to that in VA and nonfederal
hospitals; (5) public and private-sector practitioners did not use
the more labor-intensive elements; and (6) military infection
programs did not have sufficient management to include all of the
basic elements and service-required activities.
