Reducing blood culture contamination rate plays a significant role in driving antibiotic stewardship efforts and improving quality outcomes for hospital and healthcare systems. With the release of the recent CDC guidelines, Blood Culture Contamination: An Overview for Infection Control and Antibiotic Stewardship Programs Working with the Clinical Laboratory, more and more healthcare providers are seeking practice changes, including technology solutions, that will help them achieve the new CLSI goal of 1% blood culture contamination rate with best practices. In this webinar, learn more about these current and future measures to reduce contamination rates and improve the accuracy of blood culture results, and the practice change initiative of the Kentucky Hospital Association (KHA) to benchmark blood culture contamination rates and drive evidence-based best practices to reduce these rates statewide.
