Abstract

Concern frequently is voiced about individuals not com plying with guidelines intended to prevent spread of antibiotic-resistant pathogens from patient to patient, but institutional decisions to ignore Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines recommending detection and isolation of colonized patients also have contributed greatly to the increasing rate of infections due to these pathogens. This is so because colonized patients are the main reservoir for spread, and barrier precautions prevent spread much more effectively than Standard Precautions. Providing effective leadership and changing this culture of noncompliance must begin with the infection control team believing that spread is both important and preventable (Infect Control Hosp Epidemiol 2000;21:411-416).
