CDC research indicates that inappropriate prescribing of antibiotics for respiratory conditions is highest in the Urgent Care Setting at 45.7% and second highest in the Emergency Department at 24.6%. Taking the time to educate patients in these settings regarding the difference between a viral illness that does not require antibiotics and a bacterial infection is a key to managing this issue.
A cornerstone of the quality of care provided at any healthcare organization is a culture that provides for the safety of patients and promotes an environment where staff and providers feel comfortable in raising issues or concerns.
