Antimicrobial Stewardship for Skilled Nursing Facilities in Nevada

Antimicrobial resistance is a growing problem worldwide. National and international organizations have recognized this growing problem and have published guidelines and recommendations to combat it. Despite the recognition of the merits and benefits of Antimicrobial Stewardship Programs (ASPs), only 48% of all US hospitals currently have an ASP in place. Although antimicrobial resistance is a worldwide concern, it is first and foremost a local problem. Health care facilities, such as skilled-nursing and long-term acute care facilities are the sites that see multi-, extremely-, and sometimes pan-resistant bacteria and therefore carry a high responsibility for proper stewardship of our antimicrobial resources. This educational initiative is designed to overcome and address the barriers to facilitate practical implementation of ASPs in the health care setting.
