  • Clostridium difficile infection increases acute and chronic morbidity and mortality. [Journal Article]
  • ICInfect Control Hosp Epidemiol 2018 Nov 09; :1-7
  • Olsen MA, Stwalley D, … Dubberke ER
  • CONCLUSIONS: CDI was associated with increased risk of short- and long-term adverse outcomes, including transfer to short- and long-term care facilities, hospitalization, and all-cause mortality. The magnitude of mortality risk varied depending on baseline probability of CDI, suggesting that even lower-risk patients may benefit from interventions to prevent CDI.
  • Variability in antimicrobial use in pediatric ventilator-associated events. [Journal Article]
  • ICInfect Control Hosp Epidemiol 2018 Nov 09; :1-8
  • Karandikar MV, Coffin SE, … Lee GM
  • CONCLUSIONS: Antimicrobial use is common in pediatric VAC, with variability in spectrum and duration of antimicrobials within hospitals and across ICU types, while PVAP is uncommon. Prolonged antimicrobial use despite low rates of PVAP or positive laboratory testing for infection suggests that AVAC may provide a lever for antimicrobial stewardship programs to improve utilization.
