Eighteen Months of “Matching Michigan” at a UK Neonatal Intensive Care Unit

Montgomery-Taylor, Sarah BA*; Emery, Faith MB BS; Anthony, Mark PhD

Collapse Box


Our “Matching Michigan” program has 3 focuses for identifying and reducing nosocomial infection. First, practical training to optimize infection control; second, root cause analysis of blood-culture positives; and third, feedback and use of results to develop new guidelines. Our infection rates are comparable with adult units. Interventions have reduced coagulase-negative staphylococcal infections whereas other infection rates have reduced relative to increased activity.
