Complex Hospital Infection Data Confuses Consumers

Patients have difficulty deciphering complex numeric data on healthcare-associated infections used by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) to help consumers choose hospitals, according to a new study published online today in Infection Control & Hospital Epidemiology, the journal of the Society for Healthcare Epidemiology of America (SHEA).

Antibiotic-Preserving Strategies Must Be Implemented to Battle Resistance

Modern medicine is largely dependent on the efficacy of antibiotics and other antimicrobials.  Yet, the ability to treat infections successfully with antibiotics is hampered by resistance due to their overuse and misuse.  Well-documented and properly coordinated strategies like stewardship of antibiotics, expanded surveillance of antibiotic resistance, as well as investment in new drug development and diagnostic testing can work to reverse this alarming trend.  The Society for Healthcare Epidemiology of America (SHEA) is pleased to join the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and other partners in "Get Smart about Antibiotics Week" to raise awareness of strategies and programs to address antibiotic resistance.
