CDC Wants Hospitals To Better Monitor Antibiotic Use

Posted: Updated:

The Centers For Disease control say  many hospitals are over prescribing antibiotics and the practice is putting patients at risk.


The C-D-C studied hundreds of hospitals and found some prescribed antibiotics at three times the rate of others. That's rendering many of the drugs less effective and making patients more vulnerable to other types of infections.

The C-D-C recommends every hospital adopt an antibiotic stewardship or accountability program to monitor the use of the drugs.
