Infection Prevention Back to Basics: Multi-Drug Resistant Organisms (MDROs)

Event Description:

Join us for part three of the Preventing Healthcare-Associated Infections (HAIs) Learning & Action Network Series.

Over the last two years, progress toward eliminating HAIs has been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Multi-Drug Resistant Organisms (MDROs) remain a significant risk to patient safety. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), on any given day, about one in 31 hospital patients has an HAI. This dynamic webinar will highlight strategies for getting “back to basics” when it comes to preventing MDROs, particularly hospital onset C. difficile and Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus (MRSA) bacteremia. Additionally, we will learn about methods for integrating the patient voice into infection prevention.


Objectives of this event include:

  • Identify and prioritize at least two key MDRO-related infection prevention processes to hardwire and maintain in the event of another public health emergency or COVID-19 surge.
  • Establish or augment a plan to routinely track and report MDRO infections in your facility.
  • Develop a plan to routinely educate staff, patients, and families on hospital infection prevention basics.
  • Identify ways to integrate the patient voice into infection prevention improvement plans.
