Pneumonia prevention interventions such as proper oral care, head-of-bed elevation, and incentive spirometry, are not being provided to most patients outside the ICU, leading to greater than two-thirds of hospital-acquired pneumonia.
Investigators conducted a prospective genomic surveillance study of gut-colonizing third-generation cephalosporin-resistant Gram-negative organisms and vancomycin-resistant enterococci to improve infection prevention efforts in high-risk settings.
The purpose of the study was to compare a composite clinical failure outcome of 60-day readmission, 60-day recurrence, and mortality in patients treated for MRSA with dual therapy vs those de-escalated to monotherapy.
Investigators conducted a prospective cohort study to determine the prevalence of and outcomes associated with fluoroquinolone-resistant Enterobacterales in patients undergoing hematopoietic cell transplantation for a hematologic malignancy.
