Antibiotic Stewardship in the NICU

Antibiotic Stewardship in the NICU

Overview

The objective of this project is to collect data on antibiotic usage within neonatal intensive care units and newborn nurseries throughout the Commonwealth when it comes to treating patients with suspected or confirmed sepsis. The working group will collect data from the neonatal intensive care units and newborn nursery units use this data to share with the participating hospitals and help each unit examine its own practice to determine how best to optimize care of patients with suspected or confirmed sepsis.
