A recent study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Pew Charitable Trust has recognized and quantified a rise in antibiotic resistance. In 2015, The Joint Commission and CMS proposed new standards for healthcare providers to start an Antimicrobial /Antibiotic Stewardship Program. The Joint Commission provided a set of 7 recommended standards for critical access hospitals. Carthage Area Hospital has taken a proactive approach and has instituted its own program, which meets all but one of the standards. The seventh standard will be met after the program has had time to mature and trends can be tracked and measured.
