A program to remove patients from unnecessary contact precautions
Goldszer RC, Tamplin E, Yokoe DS, Shadick N, Bardon CG, Johnson PA, Hogan J, Kahlert T, Whittemore A

Although effective in helping to prevent the spread of resistant infectious organisms, contact precautions are associated with admission delays, increased use of resources, and lower patient satisfaction. In this article, the authors describe a project aimed at discontinuing unnecessary precautions by using a computerized reminder asking physicians to consider ordering surveillance cultures in patients meeting certain criteria.
