Connecticut nurses battle infection
Nurse.com, March 13, 2008
Nurses are on the front lines of a battle Connecticut hospitals are waging against multiple drug-resistant organisms. In February, the Connecticut Hospital Association held a symposium on MDROs, kicking off a collaborative effort that is bound to change the lives of nurses and patients in the state's hospitals, hopefully for the better. Some 30 of the state's acute-care and long-term care hospitals are participating and have agreed to share best practices for preventing MDROs through a password-protected website, a dedicated listserv, and frequent conference calls to monitor progress.
