Urinary tract infection treatment practices in nursing homes reporting to the National Healthcare Safety Network, 2017
Published online by Cambridge University Press: 12 March 2021

In 2017, almost 4 times as many antibiotic starts as infection events were reported, suggesting that opportunities exist for antibiotic stewardship and improvement of urinary tract infection reporting.
