[Changes in infectology over the past two decades]

SZALKA András

[Infectious diseases and various infections are the major causes of morbidity and mortality in developing as well as in industrialised countries. Despite the advances in the past decades in our understanding of microbes, efficient treatment of diseases and preventive approaches, more than 13 million people die every year due to infectious diseases. In the past two decades, more and more new pathogens and infections diseases have been emerging and old diseases that were almost forgotten have re-emerged. There are many new diseases for which we do not have or have hardly any efficient antimicrobial drugs and no efficient vaccines. Despite an increasing frequency of multi- and panresistant microbes, the development of new antibiotics to be used against these infections is unlikely to occur in the near future. The big pharmaceutical companies have stopped the research of antibiotics. In this situation, the only option we have is to use antibiotics rationally and to take prevention and control of infections seriously, both in the outpatient system and in hospitals. Preserving the effectiveness of currently used antibiotics is in everyone’s interest and is everyone’s responsibility]

[Nursing career of the high-school students]

TISÓCZKI Evelin, BALOGH Zoltán

[Aim of the research: The aim of the study is to analyze the trends of student orientation in the age and compulsory education process by age group. In our research, we would like to answer the question of how much „popularity” the health care profession as a professional area among students participating in Hungarian public education. If you feel this area of expertise close to you, what kind of vision you have. Research and sampling methods: A self-constructed questionnaire was administered during 24 Oct 2017 - 13 Jan 2018. In all counties of Hungary, the authors sent it to at least one of the training sites and filled up with me (N=329). These training sites are involved in healthcare training. Data were analysed with SPSS 15.0 for Windows statistical program. Chi square, Mann-Whitney tests were applied (p <0,05). Results: Out of the 159 people (48%), 170 (52%) in the family have healthcare workers. When performing the controls of the distributions, we can conclude that there is no significant difference in the distribution between the two groups, so there is the same number - that is, statistically significant difference - of the proportion of those willing to choose the health care path. In terms of career choice, 276 (86%) of respondents believe it is likely to be oriented towards the health care path, with 46 people (14%) planning their life is in another direction. Seven of its principal did not answer the question. By completing the Mann-Whitney test, we can conclude that there is no significant difference between the two groups in the medians, so there is no difference - that is, statistically significant difference - with respect to career choice as a nursing profession’s esteem. Of the 329 participants, 215 (65%) replied that they would like to work as a nurse, while 114 (35%) responded that they would not choose this job. Conclusion: Don’t influence significantly the career entrant if there is a healthcare worker in the family. Who stand in front of career choice don’t influence significantly the appreciation but is more motivated by sympathy and helplessness toward another person.]

[The importance of the hand hygiene compliance development in the light of prevention of nosocomial infections]

SAJTI Anikó, CSERNUS Mariann

[Good hand hygiene is the most effective means of preventing healthcare-associated infections, as contaminated hands are the greatest risk of spreading infections. It is critical that the infection control professionals emphasise the importance of good hand hygiene practices and help the health care professionals on the five steps of hand hygiene. The author presents in the case study that the numbers of positive urinary microbiological samples were decreased with systematic hand hygiene examination with direct methods and continuous feedback of experiences among the staff of the intensive care unit. For further development four sensory, alcoholic hand scrubbers with spraying automats were fitted by the management of the unit. Data obtained directly from observation further analysis is our goal a comprehensive study for the profession, which can serve as a positive example later to launch compliance development programs in other hospitals. ]

[How it all started: Untold Chapters of Nursing History in Hungary as testified by foxed Documents Part 1.]

SÖVÉNYI Ferencné, PERKÓ Magdolna, FEDINECZNÉ Vittay Katalin

[The article elaborates on the untold chapters of nursing history in Hungary, based on research in archives. The situation of nursing in Hungary in the first half of the 20th century is described, when nursing and nursing education became issues of outstanding importance and secular nursing appeared alongside faith based nursing. Several nursing organisations worked to address the unacceptable situation of nursing and strove to raise the status of nursing so as to allow this self-sacrificing vocation to take its rightful place in society. The tools to achieve this goal included providing professional education and training, creating professional literature and safeguarding nurses’ interests. The Hungarian National Association of Female and Male Nurses that came into being as a grass-root organisation in 1902, and its president, József Michalicza, an unreasonably forgotten figure in Hungarian secular nursing were instrumental in pursuing these goals. The article also mentions several dedicated figures in Hungarian nursing history, due to whose commitment Hungarian nurses were represented in the International Council of Nurses from 1933 until the interference of politics. ]

[What is the doctor like, if female? - Female doctors’ ideal image based on empirical studies]

MOLNÁR Regina, GIRASEK Edmond, CSINÁDY Adriána, BUGÁN Antal

[The aim of our study was to examine thestereotypes about female doctors and howdo the female medical students perceivethe working female doctors whom are theirrole models. In the first study (247 from theAlbert Szent-Györgyi Medical and Pharma-ceutical Centre at the University of Szegedand 256 from the Medical and HealthScience Centre of the University ofDebrecen) the female medical students’professional socialization was compared tothe male counterparts’. In the second study(from University of Szeged, 214 femalemedical students, 132 female jurist stu-dents) female medical and jurist students'professional socialization was comparedincluding the comparison of stereotypes inconnection with working female doctorsand jurists. Female medical students’ professionalsocialization is different that of male coun-terparts in several aspects: being morealtruistic, more family centered, gettingcommited to the profession earlier, havingmore ambiguous carrier planes, and asmaller percentage of their parents’ has adegree or is a medical doctor, then for malemedical students. The female medical doc-tor has positive, idealistic, altruistic charac-ters according to both female studentgroups’ opinions. The female doctor’simage is more often associated with char-actersitics implying problems by femalemedical students then jurists. The unfold-ing image of these stereotypes is a femaledoctor who is willing to help, however,faceing lots of hardnesses during work.If the female medical students’ image of theproblematic life of these idealistic femaledoctors’ is known, it provides an opportu-nity to prepare them for the hardnessesthey’ll face avoiding role conflicts andhealth problems in the future.]
