We evaluated the impact of applying the Infectious Diseases Society of America guidelines for febrile neutropenic patients in reducing the use of glycopeptides. Forty-five prior episodes of febrile neutropenia were compared to 97 episodes seen after application of the guidelines. Glycopeptide use was reduced from 73% to 43% of episodes (P=.0008), without changes in outcome.
