Prioritizing Prevention to Combat Multidrug Resistance in Nursing Homes: A Call to Action - Journal of the American Medical Directors Association

Prioritizing Prevention to Combat Multidrug Resistance in Nursing Homes: A Call to Action - Journal of the American Medical Directors Association: Multidrug-resistant organisms (MDROs) do not discriminate—they spread in all health
care settings. From our unique vantage point at the Centers for Disease Control and
Prevention (CDC), we are witnessing the emergence of novel MDROs across the country,
which are causing life-threatening infections, with limited to no available treatments.1
Public health efforts to detect and contain these pathogens have revealed the significant
role nursing homes, especially those caring for a medically complex, higher-acuity
resident population, are playing in the regional spread of these dangerous pathogens.
