Periodically, DASON staff will publish and distribute "FAQs" (Frequently Asked Questions) here to member institutions. FAQs include information and opinions from DASON about antimicrobial stewardship questions that member institutions have asked DASON staff to address. We have removed all identifying items from the FAQs in order to keep the name of the person or hospital asking the question anonymous. These FAQs serve to help our hospitals provide excellent care for their patients. These FAQs may be printed for distribution at each institution.
FAQ # 1—What are the DASON recommendations for IV line maintenance and flushing practices?
FAQ # 2—C.difficile testing: What's in a name?
