In conjunction with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's release of their recent Vital Signs report on antibiotic resistance, American Hospital Association (AHA) chief medical officer and HRET chief executive officer Jay Bhatt published a blog post on AHA's website that highlights the tools and resources AHA has available to help hospitals combat the spread of Multidrug-resistant Organisms (MDROs). The blog post highlighted HRET HIIN initiatives and resources, including the MDRO Change Package, the MDRO Infections Top 10 Checklist, the Data of Last MDRO poster and recordings from past MDRO-focused webinars.
