Invasive methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus infections in the United States.
TLDR
Invasive MRSA infection affects certain populations disproportionately and is a major public health problem primarily related to health care but no longer confined to intensive care units, acute care hospitals, or any health care institution.
Multistate point-prevalence survey of health care-associated infections.
TLDR
Results of this multistate prevalence survey of health care-associated infections indicate that public health surveillance and prevention activities should continue to address C. difficile infections.
Changes in Prevalence of Health Care–Associated Infections in U.S. Hospitals
TLDR
The prevalence of health care–associated infections was lower in 2015 than in 2011, largely owing to reductions in the prevalence of surgical‐site and urinary tract infections.
Characterization of Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus Isolates Collected in 2005 and 2006 from Patients with Invasive Disease: a Population-Based Analysis
TLDR
This collection provides a reference collection of MRSA isolates associated with invasive disease, collected in 2005 and 2006 in the United States, for future comparison and ongoing studies.
Interim Estimates of Vaccine Effectiveness of Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna COVID-19 Vaccines Among Health Care Personnel — 33 U.S. Sites, January–March 2021
TLDR
VE of partial and complete vaccination in this population is comparable to that reported from clinical trials and recent observational studies, supporting the effectiveness of mRNA COVID-19 vaccines against symptomatic disease in adults, with strong 2-dose protection.
Characteristics and Maternal and Birth Outcomes of Hospitalized Pregnant Women with Laboratory-Confirmed COVID-19 — COVID-NET, 13 States, March 1–August 22, 2020
TLDR
Pregnant women and health care providers should be made aware of the potential risks for severe COVID-19 illness, adverse pregnancy outcomes, and ways to prevent infection.
Prevalence of antimicrobial use in US acute care hospitals, May-September 2011.
TLDR
In this cross-sectional evaluation of antimicrobial use in US hospitals, use of broad-spectrum antimicrobial drugs such as piperacillin-tazobactam and drugssuch as vancomycin for resistant pathogens was common, including for treatment of community-onset infections and among patients outside critical care units.
Invasive methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus infections among patients on chronic dialysis in the United States, 2005-2011.
TLDR
There has been a substantial decrease in invasive MRSA infection incidence among dialysis patients, suggesting that efforts to control MRSA in hospitals might have contributed to the declines.
National burden of invasive methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus infections, United States, 2011.
TLDR
An estimated 30,800 fewer invasive MRSA infections occurred in the United States in 2011 compared with 2005; in 2011 fewer infections occurred among patients during hospitalization than among persons in the community without recent health care exposures.
Is drinking water a risk factor for endemic cryptosporidiosis? A case-control study in the immunocompetent general population of the San Francisco Bay Area
TLDR
The results of this study do not support the hypothesis that drinking water is an independent risk factor for cryptosporidiosis among the immunocompetent population, and should be used to design larger studies of endemic cryptospora infection to elucidate the precise mechanisms of transmission.
