Objective: Effective isolation management of multiple drug resistant organism (MDRO) patients is considered an important measure to prevent cross-infection. To reduce the spread of MDRO, there is a need to improve the correct implementation of isolation measures for intensive care unit (ICU) medical personnel. We will investigate the application of quality control circle (QCC) activities in improving the correct implementation rate of isolation measures for patients with MDRO in ICU medical personnel. Methods: A 10-member QCC activity group was established. All of the ICU medical personnel were taken as the research objects, including doctors, nurses, assistant nurses, rotation training personnel, external ICU consultants and cleaning personnel. The correct implementation of isolation measures for patients with MDRO infection were investigated and studied, which identified the problem areas and analyzed the main reasons. The quality improvement countermeasures were formulated and implemented in ICU medical personnel, while the results were compared with before and after the QCC activities. Results: After QCC activities, the correct implementation rate of isolation measures by ICU medical personnel for patients with MDRO infection increased from 57.7% to 82.4%. The incidence of MDRO infection in ICU patients decreased from 9.64% to 3.77%, with statistically significant differences (P < 0.05). Conclusion: The QCC activities improved the correct implementation rate of MDRO isolation measures by ICU medical personnel, standardizing the isolation management of MDRO patients, while the incidence of MDRO in ICU patients was also effectively reduced.
