CDC Video - Stop the Spread of Antibiotic Resistance

CDC have recently released a video that demonstrates how antibiotic-resistant germs spread between healthcare facilities, including those that practice infection control and antibiotic stewardship.

The, "CDC Vital Signs: Stop the Spread of Antibiotic Resistance," video also spotlights a coordinated approach to reduce germs and infections.
According to the CDC's latest mathematical modeling, the number of drug-resistant infections, including Clostridium difficile infections, is expectedto rise if no immediate, nationwide infection control and antibiotic prescription improvements are made. The research found that a coordinated response could reduce infections by 74 percent over five years.

Of course, all this can only be achieved if there is an honest and frank collaboration between the various institutions providing health and social support.

Questions to consider

  • What are the measures implemented in my institution to ensure that the information on resistant microorganisms to antibiotics is transmitted to other institutions when the patient is transferred or discharged?
  • When a patient is transferred to my institution, we received this information?
