Abstract

We implemented an antimicrobial stewardship program at an urban, 60-bed long-term acute care hospital using a strategy of weekly postprescriptive chart audit with intervention and feedback. The results for the first 15 months demonstrated 80% acceptance of recommendations, a 21% reduction in use, and a 28% reduction in cost per patient-day.
