Antimicrobial resistance may have increased during COVID-19 pandemic due to the medications being used to treat the virus including steroids and other immune-suppressive medications, longer hospital length of stay, ICU length of stay, and duration of mechanical ventilator. During East Alabama Medical Center’s (EAMC) annual review of their antibiogram, the antimicrobial stewardship and infection prevention teams discovered dramatic changes in hospital-acquired infections as well as increasing resistance patterns. Join this webinar to learn how the team at EAMC further stratified their data and made significant changes to recommended antimicrobials.
