Abstract

A multicenter quasi-experimental study of a provider-driven antibiotic “time-out” in 3470 antibiotic courses showed no difference in antibiotic use before and after implementation, but did show a decrease in inappropriate therapy (45% vs 31%, P < .05). Single time-outs without input from antibiotic stewardship teams are insufficient to optimize prescribing.
