BZH-ANTINFEKT comprehensive antibiotic stewardship program
Antibiotic stewardship programs and infectious disease consultations - the second pillar of modern infection control concepts
Antibiotics belong to the most frequently prescribed groups of drugs.
Multiresistant organisms, increasing rates of drug-induced complications, extended length of stay and high costs are just some of the undesirable side effects of inadequate prescriptions of antibiotics.
The BZH-ANTINFEKT-program supports the hospital to implement a comprehensive individual antibiotic stewardship based on the local resistance profile and a continuous support by infectious disease specialists.
Classical infection control concepts and antibiotic stewardship programs are working side by side in a comprehensive modern concept of high-quality patient care.
