Taylor Regional Hospital Makes Commitment to Newly Formed Antimicrobial Stewardship Program
Antibiotic resistance is a major and worsening problem confronting healthcare providers and patients today. We have seen an increase in drug-resistant organisms across the country coupled with a decrease in new antimicrobials on the market, so it is imperative that we protect the agents we have currently available by judicious antimicrobial management. Antimicrobial Stewardship has been shown to improve patient outcomes by judicious antimicrobial management. Additionally, Antimicrobial Stewardship has been shown to improve patient outcomes significantly by optimizing dosing for individual patients, reducing toxicity, reducing potential development of resistant infections, and decreasing medication costs, while potentially preserving the therapeutic effectiveness of antimicrobials for populations.
Taylor Regional Hospital commits to improving antibiotic use in our Facility. Taylor Regional Hospital Administration and Board of Trustees are committed to embracing and executing the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC) Core Elements of Antibiotic Stewardship For Nursing Homes. The seven core elements for antimicrobial stewardship include:
• Leadership Commitment
• Drug expertise
Our administration has identified an Antimicrobial Stewardship (AMS) Leadership Team at our facility. Our AMS leadership team includes a physician/physician assistant/nurse
practitioner champion, a nurse champion, an infection prevention champion, and a pharmacist champion working in collaboration as appropriate by facility resources and/or structure.
