A CLINICAL ASSESSEMENT OF 4,071 FULL RESPIRATORY PANEL PCR TESTS AMONG 56 LONG-TERM CARE FACILITIES IDENTIFIES CONCERN OVER ANTIBIOTIC-RESISANT GENES
 

New Clinical Abstract:

Know what pathogens are in your facility to reduce overall infection risks and antibiotic gene resistance.

Skilled nursing facilities (SNFs) are being held to a new "Gold Standard" of infection control and antibiotic surveillance by CMS (and penalized for non-compliance), while families, staff, hospitals, and health systems seek out SNFs that embrace comprehensive infection prevention and control measures. 

AMS Infection Prevention Partners Chief Medical Director, Dr. Chris Morgan, recently took an extensive look at more than 4,000 full respiratory panel PCR tests conducted at 56 long-term care facilities. Of the 4,071 total tests analyzed, more than one-third had at least one antibiotic-resistant pathogen. 

More than 70% of LTC residents receive one or more courses of antibiotics annually, leading to increased prevalence of MDROs, which have led to the deaths of 35,000 Americans, along with compounding clinical care costs and unnecessary hospital admissions.

Read more about Dr. Morgan's clinical findings, understand the growing risks of multi-drug resistant organisms (MDROs) and learn how to reduce infection rates and MDROs in your facility. Download the full abstract now!
