This is due both to the delay in detecting MDROs
and the subsequent delay in patients receiving adequate therapy, as well as the limited antibiotic treatment options that are now available for the most resistant infections.
A number of studies have shown that improvements in hand hygiene are associated with lower healthcare-associated infection rates, and/or reductions in MDRO
transmission and acquisition.
Several strategies have been documented in the literature as being successful in the prevention and control of MDRO
2007), it is also possible that reinstatement may play a role when NCR or NCR with MDRO
fails to produce positive clinical effects if reinforcement stimuli acquire discriminative properties.
By using MRSA hospital and community acquired rates health care systems can gauge their compliance rate with MDRO
The goal of prevention of further MDRO
infections is the best method to decrease the burden that management of actual cases of MDROs
places on facilities.
Reducing MRSA and other MDRO
frequencies over time is of preeminent importance (10) and probability modeling needs to be on the front lines of this effort.
OpGen is developing the Lighthouse MDRO
Management System to help address these needs.

Krenitsky will oversee the rollout of OpGen's Acuitas(TM) MDRO
(Multi-Drug Resistant Organisms) family of Gene Tests and Acuitas Lighthouse(TM) MDRO
Management System in development.
Compliance Manager, designed for use with TheraDoc's Infection Control Assistant([R]) and its Expert System Platform([R])core technology, was created to help hospitals boost compliance with screening protocols by quickly identifying patients who should be tested and those who need to be isolated in order to reduce the spread of MRSA and other drug-resistant organisms to other patients, staff, and visitors.
Catheter-associated urinary-tract infections may be caused by MDRO
as well as other organisms.
