THE MICHIGAN HOSPITAL MEDICINE SAFETY CONSORTIUM: IMPROVING PATIENT CARE BY REDUCING EXCESSIVE ANTIBIOTIC USE IN PATIENTS HOSPITALIZED WITH COMMUNITY-ACQUIRED PNEUMONIA

Background: Most patients hospitalized with community-acquired pneumonia (CAP) can be safely treated with 5-days of antibiotic therapy. However, many are not. We aimed to determine whether a hospitalist-focused collaborative could reduce excessive antibiotic use in [...]

CRUSH THE RESISTANCE: A MULTIDISCIPLINARY PILOT PROJECT TO IMPROVE ANTIBIOTIC UTILIZATION

Background: Growing antimicrobial resistance, C. difficile infection and cost have triggered a greater reliance on antimicrobial stewardship. Most stewardship models rely upon a central team, often led by ID specialists, to oversee prescribing in an [...]

ANTIBIOTIC STEWARDSHIP TEAMS AND CLOSTRIDIOIDES DIFFICILE INFECTION PREVENTION PRACTICES IN UNITED STATES HOSPITALS: A NATIONAL SURVEY IN THE JOINT COMMISSION ANTIMICROBIAL STEWARDSHIP STANDARD ERA

Background: Clostridioides difficile infection (CDI) can be prevented through infection prevention practices and antibiotic stewardship. We found in a 2013 national survey (571 hospitals, 71% response rate) that while infection prevention practices for CDI were [...]

THE TIP OF THE ICEBERG, ANTIBIOTIC STEWARDSHIP AND FLUOROQUINOLONE USE AT HOSPITAL DISCHARGE: A MULTI-HOSPITAL COHORT STUDY

Background: Inpatient antibiotic stewardship programs often use pre-prescription approval (PPA) or prospective audit and feedback (PAF) to reduce fluoroquinolone prescribing. Whether these stewardship strategies targeting inpatient fluoroquinolone use also influence prescribing at discharge is unknown. [...]

THE ALLERGY THAT WASN’T: INPATIENT PENICILLIN TESTING; AN IMPORTANT STEP FOR ANTIBIOTIC STEWARDSHIP

Background: Approximately 5-10% of the US population reports a Penicillin (PCN) allergy. Only 1 in 10 of these patients are found to have a positive reaction to PCN. This label comes at a grave cost, [...]

AN INVESTIGATIVE BIOFIRE SPUTUM FILM ARRAY PANEL IMPROVES RAPID DIAGNOSTICS IN PATIENTS HOSPITALIZED WITH COMMUNITY ACQUIRED PNEUMONIA

Background: With standard diagnostic methods, the etiologic pathogen of community acquired pneumonia (CAP) is detected in ≤ 50% hospitalized CAP patients. In our previous studies using a diagnostic “bundle”, we were able to detect etiologic [...]

ANTIBIOTIC STEWARDSHIP FOR UNCOMPLICATED URINARY TRACT INFECTIONS IN THE INPATIENT SETTING

Background: Uncomplicated Urinary Tract Infections (UTIs) account for more than 100,000 inpatient admissions yearly. IDSA guidelines recommend Nitrofurantoin as first line therapy and recent FDA guidelines recommend against Fluoroquinolone (FQ) use due their side effects [...]

PROCALCITONIN UTILIZATION IN PATIENTS HOSPITALIZED WITH PNEUMONIA IN MICHIGAN HOSPITALS: A COHORT STUDY

Background: Inappropriate antibiotic use is associated with bacterial resistance, adverse events, and an increased risk of Clostridium difficileinfection. However, providers often prescribe antibiotics for viral respiratory infections and treat infections such as bacterial pneumonia for [...]

PREOPERATIVE ANTIBIOTIC KNOWLEDGE AND PRESCRIBING PRACTICES: A CASE FOR A CENTRALIZED AND STANDARDIZED APPROACH

Background: Surgical site infections (SSI) can complicate any operative procedure although this risk is mitigated through the use of preoperative antibiotic prophylaxis.  While antibiotic prophylaxis can provide great benefit, inappropriate use can lead to the [...]

FACTORS ASSOCIATED WITH EXCESS DURATION OF ANTIBIOTIC THERAPY FOR PATIENTS ADMITTED WITH PNEUMONIA IN MICHIGAN HOSPITALS: A COHORT STUDY

Background: Pneumonia is often treated for longer than necessary, yet factors associated with excess duration of treatment are unknown. We sought to: (a) develop an algorithm to determine appropriate antibiotic duration in non-intensive care unit [...]
