Is the spread of multi-drug resistant (MDRO) organisms a major problem in your patient care environment? Then consider designing a plan of attack using the latest evidence and implementation strategies to win the bug war. MDRO’s contribute to serious infections and higher mortality in acute and critically ill patients. This session will explore modes of transmission to outline a strategy for source control. Habitual care practices including bathing, oral hygiene, and handwashing will be examined closely as potential sources. An in-depth focus on the development of evidence-based care practices and protocols and the examination of resources and systems that support source control and reduce transmission will be discussed. Let’s eradicate the bugs together.
