Drive Antimicrobial Stewardship by Reducing Unnecessary Antibiotic Utilization

False positive blood cultures are a preventable error that impact patient safety and care. Each false positive result can lead to unnecessary antibiotic utilization, increased exposure to HAIs/HACs, and increased risk of Clostridium difficile infection. Even with best practices, between 35-50% of positive blood cultures are false-postive. Steripath is the only vein-to-bottle, closed blood culture collection system that can virtually eliminate the preventable error of blood culture contamination and false positive results for sepsis. Steripath has been clinically proven to support a sustained contamination rate of 0.2% (P=0.001) and reduce Vancomycin DOT by 37% (P=0.007). Contact us today, and learn how Steripath can help drive your Antimicrobial Stewardship initiatives.
