Description

Antimicrobial stewardship of anti-infectives prescribed upon hospital discharge was implemented to improve the rate of appropriate prescribing at discharge. Appropriate prescribing significantly improved from 47.5% to 85.2% (P < .001), antimicrobial days of therapy decreased, and 30-day readmission rates decreased. Discharge antimicrobial stewardship was effective in improving anti-infective prescribing practices.
