Antibiotic Stewardship for Long-term Care
HANYS is committed to supporting New York state healthcare organizations across the continuum of care as they accelerate their focus on antibiotic stewardship to address growing concerns about drug-resistant organisms.
This interactive toolkit provides nursing homes with cutting-edge practical tools, templates and guidance. Click through the menu on the left to access these valuable resources.
Throughout our antibiotic stewardship for long-term care website, you’ll find videos hosted by Ghinwa Dumyati, MD, infectious disease physician and professor of medicine at University of Rochester Medical Center, that walk through the core elements of antibiotic stewardship.
We also encourage you to listen to three 15-minute recorded conversations with experts from the CDC, DOH and hospitals who share details about the current state of affairs and the future of emerging infections and antimicrobial stewardship in New York, including a session just for nursing homes.
Note: A select number of resources are designed for the acute care setting but can easily be adapted for nursing homes.
