De-Escalation of Contact Precautions- An Interrupted Time Series Analysis: Now Published!


Our article assessing the de-escalation of contact precautions with an interrupted time series analysis is now published electronically, print copy to follow in Infection Control and Hospital Epidemiology.

We continue to observe decreasing trends of all hospital-acquired infections (including MRSA and VRE)  with a broad based horizontal infection control program. The de-escalation of contact precautions has not negatively impacted this trend.

Special thank you to all of the collaborators, particularly Mike Edmond from the University of Iowa.
