CDC AR factsheet: Facilities work together to protect patients

According to the latest CDC Vital Signs released today, improved infection control and antibiotic prescribing could save 37,000 lives over five years. The August 2015 issue of Vital Signs includes mathematical modeling that projects increases in drug-resistant infections and Clostridium difficile (C. difficile) without immediate, nationwide improvements in infection control and antibiotic prescribing.
The report shows that a coordinated approach—that is, health care facilities and health departments in an area working together—could prevent up to 70 percent of life-threatening carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae (CRE)infections over five years.
