Diagnosis, Treatment, and Prevention of Urinary Tract Infections in Post-Acute and Long-Term Care Settings: A Consensus Statement From AMDA's Infection Advisory Subcommittee - Journal of the American Medical Directors Association

Diagnosis, Treatment, and Prevention of Urinary Tract Infections in Post-Acute and Long-Term Care Settings: A Consensus Statement From AMDA's Infection Advisory Subcommittee - Journal of the American Medical Directors Association: The diagnosis and management of urinary tract infections (UTIs) among residents of
post-acute and long-term care (PALTC) settings remains challenging. Nonspecific symptoms,
complex medical conditions, insufficient awareness of diagnostic criteria, and unnecessary
urine studies all contribute to the inappropriate diagnosis and treatment of UTIs
in PALTC residents. In 2017, the Infection Advisory Subcommittee at AMDA—The Society
for Post-Acute and Long-Term Care Medicine convened a workgroup comprised of experts
in geriatrics and infectious diseases to review recent literature regarding UTIs in
the PALTC population.
