Abstract

A comprehensive utilization review was done of all stool ova and parasite examinations performed at a pediatric hospital during a 3-year period from June 1, 1989 to July 1, 1992, A total of 2,652 stool specimens were surveyed from 1,532 children. Forty-one percent (1,081) of theworkload was from inpatients, 37% (976) was from emergency room (ER) visits/other outpatients, and 22% (233) was from patients attending the gastroenterology (GI) clinic, The prevalence of enteric parasites inhospitalized children was 4% (35 of 829) compared to rates of 10% (47of 470) and 13% (30 of 233) for children attending the ER/other outpatient clinics and GI clinic, respectively. Giardia lamblia was found most often (31% (45 of 146)), followed by Dientamoeba fragilis (23% [33of 146]), Entamoeba call (16% [24 of 146]), Blastocystis hominis (13%[19 of 146]), Cryptosporidium (8% [12 of 146]), Endolimax nana (4% [6of 146]), Enterobius vermicularis (2% [3 of 146]), Hymenolepis nana (2% [3 of 136]), and Iodamoeba buetschlii(1% [1 of 146]), Most childrenwere colonized/infected with a single parasite (85%) with a much smaller number having two or more parasites. Only nine children (6%) who were immunocompetent and hospitalized for more than 4 days were found to have enteric parasites. Over the past 18 months, significant sustainable cost savings have resulted from the implementation of practice guidelines for ordering pediatric stool ova and parasite examinations.
