Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Ever since antibiotics have been used to combat infection, resistance to them has also developed. The elderly and immunosuppressed populations found in today's dialysis facility comprise a group at risk for acquiring infection caused by drug resistant organisms. By utilizing antibiotics prudently and developing infection control strategies based on the disease/organism epidemiology, mode of transmission and individualized needs of the patient as well as the care setting, the proliferation of drug resistant organisms may be curtailed.
