Stewardship at Nash UNC Health Care

A December 16, 2017 article in the Rocky Mount Telegram highlights the partnership between DASON and Nash UNC Health Care, one of DASON's member facilities. In the article, Nash UNC Health Care pharmacist and antimicrobial stewardship co-chair Luke Heuts talks about the importance of using antibiotics appropriately and only when necessary.

“To further complicate matters, if antibiotics are used when not needed, they won’t help — and the side effects can still be harmful."

Congratulations Dr. Heuts, Dr. Castillo, and the rest of the Nash UNC Health Care team on your continued success in stewardship!
