Blood and urine cultures are an important diagnostic test to help clinicians target treatment options for patients. However, inappropriately collected specimens, and over-utilized specimens can inadvertently lead to false-positive determinations for CAUTI and CLABSI, and – more importantly – lead to over-use of antibiotics in patients. In this interactive Qualis Health Learning and Action Network webinar, Martha Jaworski, MS, RN, CIC will discuss best practices for optimizing the ordering, collection, and testing of urine and blood specimens.
