Kids may leave hospital sooner when antibiotics are controlled
from HealthDay News via U.S. News & World Report
New research finds that children who are hospitalized get discharged sooner and come back less often when hospitals take extra efforts to control treatment that uses antibiotics. Some hospitals and other medical facilities have embraced "stewardship programs" designed to make it harder for physicians to prescribe antibiotic medications without a good reason. While antibiotics can often effectively treat and cure infections, their overuse has allowed certain germs to develop resistance and keep people sick despite the use of powerful drugs.
