Antibiotic Stewardship

30/30 Education Session - 30 minutes

3200 - Using the NHSN and Evidence-Based Guidelines to Impact Antibiotic Usage for Treatment of Urinary Tract Infection in Long-Term Care

Friday, June 16
10:00 AM - 10:30 AM
Location: Oregon Convention Center, B 110-112

Antimicrobial stewardship is a commitment to judicious use of antibiotics: the right antibiotic, at the right dose, and for the right duration, with de-escalation. When implemented effectively, stewardship imparts important benefits to individual patients, with improved cure rates and reduced risks of Clostridium difficile infections (CDIs) and other antibiotic-associated adverse events. This is true across the continuum of healthcare, including the long-term care (LTC) arena. Stewardship also helps prevent or delay the development of multidrug-resistant organisms within a patient population. Infection preventionists are key team members in designing and implementing antimicrobial stewardship activities in LTC settings. This session will review the business case used to produce buy-in and collaboration with executive leadership of a nursing home chain and with medical directors, administrators, and nursing directors at each of the six facilities involved in this project. This business case model can be used by infection preventionists instituting similar projects. The presenter will describe the tools/interventions developed for use by staff at each nursing home. The session also will address working with the National Health Safety Network (NHSN), which accommodated entry of retrospective baseline data into the urinary tract infection (UTI) module, as well as module customization to allow for ongoing collection of stewardship data. Comparison of reimplementation and postimplementation data sets facilitated analysis of the effectiveness of evidence-based stewardship practices for UTI treatment in LTC patients.
