Antibiotic stewardship programs ensure that hospitalized patients receive the right antibiotic, at the right dose, at the right time and for the right duration. They effectively combat antibiotic resistance and save lives. Learn how one laboratory recently integrated rapid identification of blood culture pathogens using MALDI-TOF mass spectrometry with a new antibiotic stewardship program. Results demonstrated significantly decreased time to organism identification and optimal therapy, decreased length of stay and decreased total costs.
