Antibiotic Stewardship in the NICU

The objective of this project is to collect data on antibiotic usage within
neonatal intensive care units and newborn nurseries throughout the
commonwealth when it comes to treating patients with suspected or
confirmed sepsis. The working group will collect data from the neonatal
intensive care units and newborn nursery units use this data to share
with the participating hospitals and help each unit examine its own
practice to determine how best to optimize care of patients with
suspected or confirmed sepsis.
