Morrill HJ, Mermel LA, Baier RR, Alexander-Scott N, Dosa D, Kavoosifar S, Reece R, LaPlante KL. Antimicrobial Stewardship in Rhode Island Long-Term Care Facilities: Current Standings and Future Opportunities. Infection control and hospital epidemiology. 2016 Aug 1; 37(8):979-82.
Our survey of antimicrobial stewardship practices among Rhode Island long-term care facilities demonstrated opportunities to develop formal programs. Results suggest infection preventionists are largely responsible for ensuring appropriate antibiotic use in long-term care facilities and there is a need for increased interdisciplinary access to individuals with antimicrobial stewardship expertise.
