    • Overview

      Infections that are facilitated within the hospital setting are becoming more prevalent. Additionally, the reaction to them by all members of the healthcare team are becoming more significant. Finally, third party payers are starting to ‘scrutinize reimbursement’ to hospitals for certain infections. These are just a few reasons why it is important to review and update this topic every 12 – 18 months. As always the overall goals are to provide safe and effective pharmacy care, while advising patients with reliable and important information.
