The emergence of antibiotic-resistant pathogens has been an ongoing concern of infection-control and infectious disease practitioners. Infections caused by these organisms increase costs and may result in poorer outcomes for patients. Efforts to contain the problem of infections caused by drug-resistant organisms have two objectives: to optimize antibiotic use and to prevent transmission through effective infection-control practices.
