Members of the Delray Medical Center "Antimicrobial Stewardship Team" regularly conduct patient tracers to confirm antibiotic appropriateness for indication and duration of therapy. Improving the use of antibiotics is an important patient safety and public health issue as well as a national priority. A growing body of evidence demonstrates that hospital-based programs dedicated to improving antibiotic use - commonly referred to as “Antibiotic Stewardship Programs” - can both optimize the treatment of infections and reduce adverse events associated with antibiotic use.

World Hand Hygiene Day is celebrated every year on May 5th. Poor hand hygiene is a major cause behind common infections such as a cold, flu, diarrhea, sepsis and hepatitis A. So, maintaining hand hygiene by washing your hands regularly is the key to infection prevention. You should wash your hands for a full 20 seconds – a time you can approximate by singing “Happy Birthday” twice. As part of DMC’s Hand Hygiene campaign, our Infection Prevention Nurses Eva Livingston, Leanna Pereira and Kathie Regan-Dey educated hospital and medical staff and visitors on good hand hygiene with the use of the Black Light Hand Hygiene tool. Casting the black light detects things otherwise invisible to the naked eye and helps visualize the lasting power of germs.
