Abstract Background Bloodstream infections (BSI) are common after hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT), and associated with increased long-term morbidity and mortality. However, short-term outcomes related to BSI in this population remain unknown. More specifically, it is unclear whether choices related to empiric antimicrobials for potentially infected patients are associated with patient outcomes. Research Question Are potential delays in appropriate antibiotics associated with hospi...

: Candida infective endocarditis (CIE) is a rare but serious complication of candidemia. Incidence and risk factors associated with CIE among candidemic patients are poorly defined from small cohorts. Identification of clinical predictors associated with this entity may guide more judicious use of cardiac imaging. We conducted a retrospective analysis of all inpatients aged ≥18 years diagnosed with candidemia at our institution. CIE was diagnosed by fulfilling two of the major Duke criteria: spe...

: Dissemination and implementation science seeks generalizable knowledge about closing the gap between clinical discovery and actual use in routine practice and public health. The field of infectious diseases enjoys an abundance of highly efficacious interventions (e.g., antimicrobial agents, HIV treatment) which are not adequately used in routine care, thereby missing critical opportunities to improve population health. In this article, we summarize salient features of dissemination and impleme...

Terminal room cleaning is critical in preventing pathogen transmission; however, the optimal cleaning effectiveness assessment modality is still being investigated. We sequentially compared cleanliness assessment agreement between a fluorescent marker and an adenosine triphosphate bioluminescence method, finding no significant differences between modalities.

Background Telemedicine use is increasing in many specialties, but its impact on clinical outcomes in infectious diseases has not been systematically reviewed. We reviewed the current evidence for clinical effectiveness of telemedicine infectious diseases consultations, including outcomes of mortality, hospital readmission, antimicrobial use, cost, length of stay, adherence, and patient satisfaction.

: We retrospectively compared the clinical characteristics of hospital-acquired (HA) vs non-hospital-acquired (nHA) Acinetobacter calcoaceticus-baumannii complex isolates in a large health care system in St. Louis, Missouri, from 2007 to 2017. More than 60% of the total isolates were nHA; they were predominantly from nonrespiratory sources and exhibited ~40% carbapenem resistance rates and stably persisted, though HA occurrence waned.

Telemedicine use is increasing in many specialties, but its impact on clinical outcomes in infectious diseases has not been systematically studied and reviewed. The proposed systematic review will evaluate the current evidence regarding the effect of telemedicine infectious diseases consultation on a range of clinical outcomes, including mortality, hospital readmission, antimicrobial use, and cost. Standard systematic review methodology will be used, with searches of Ovid MEDLINE 1946-, https://...
