Measure: Implement evidence-based practices to prevent health care associated infections due to multiple drug-resistant organisms.

Time Period Ending:  3/31/2013

What We Are Doing:

Multiple Drug Resistant Organisms (MDRO) are an ever-growing concern in Healthcare. Ketchikan Medical Center uses isolation precautions for patients with confirmed or suspected MDRO and uses precautions during and after your stay. We track and trend infections to help us identify opportunities for improvement that will keep our patients free of health care acquired infection.  Questions may be routed to the Infection Preventionist at phone #:  907-225-5171, ex 7879.
