Antibiotics and In-Patients

In-Patient Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) IssuesIn-Patient Antimicrobial Resistance Dr. Arjun Srinivasan, Associate Director for Healthcare-Associated Infection Prevention Programs, Division of Healthcare Quality Promotion, National Center for Emerging and Zoonotic Infectious Diseases, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), talks about what is being done in hospitals to improve antibiotic use. Dr. Srinivasan outlines notable goals about the future of patient care around antibiotics. Key in hospitals is that physicians do not like to be "managed" so the shift is forward the phase "stewardship". Take aways: Many experts, including advisers to the President, have called for the government to require hospitals and nursing homes to have antibiotic stewardship programs [video].
