Infectious Diseases Society of America and the Society for Healthcare Epidemiology of America Guidelines for Developing an Institutional Program to Enhance Antimicrobial Stewardship
TLDR
This research presents a meta-analysis of 125 cases of central giant cell apoptosis, a type of cell death that is known as a “cell death” and which has been associated with Parkinson’s disease for more than 40 years.

Clinical practice guidelines for antimicrobial prophylaxis in surgery.
TLDR
These guidelines are intended to provide practitioners with a standardized approach to the rational, safe, and effective use of antimicrobial agents for the prevention of surgical-site infections based on currently available clinical evidence and emerging issues.
Clinical practice guidelines for antimicrobial prophylaxis in surgery.
These guidelines were developed jointly by the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP), the Infectious Diseases Society of America (IDSA), the Surgical Infection Society (SIS), and the
The Epidemiology of Carbapenem-Resistant Enterobacteriaceae: The Impact and Evolution of a Global Menace
TLDR
The evolution of CRE is discussed, with a focus on the epidemiology of the CPE pandemic; risk factors for colonization and infection with the most common transmissible CPE worldwide, Klebsiella pneumoniae carbapenemase-producing K. pneumoniae are reviewed; and strategies used to halt the striking spread of these deadly pathogens are presented.
Guidelines for the Prevention of Intravascular Catheter–Related Infections
TLDR
Examples of evidence-based interventions that can reduce the risk for serious catheter-related infection are education and training, maximal sterile barrier precautions, and 2% chlorhexidine preparation for skin antisepsis.
Effect of daily chlorhexidine bathing on hospital-acquired infection.
TLDR
Daily bathing with chlorhexidine-impregnated washcloths significantly reduced the risks of acquisition of MDROs and development of hospital-acquired bloodstream infections.
Strategies to Prevent Central Line–Associated Bloodstream Infections in Acute Care Hospitals
TLDR
The intent of this document is to highlight practical recommendations in a concise format designed to assist acute care hospitals in implementing and prioritizing their central line–associated bloodstream infection (CLABSI) prevention efforts.
Acinetobacter infection.
TLDR
A cinetobacter is a gram-negative coccobacillus that during the past three decades has emerged from an organism of questionable pathogenicity to an infectious agent of importance to hospitals worldwide and has the ability to accumulate diverse mechanisms of resistance.
