Research Students Win Award at Quality & Safety Symposium

Research students Raven Brenneke and Lance Evans, working under the direction of Randy Loftus, MD, won 2nd place in the faculty category at the University Hospitals & Clinics' 7th annual Quality and Safety Symposium for their poster "A Multi-Faceted, Perioperative Infection Control Program Optimized by Surveillance Reduces Reservoir S. aureus Exposure and Transmission and Surgical Site Infections." The team studied whether a comprehensive approach that incorporates better provider hand hygiene compliance, intravascular catheter hub disinfection, environmental cleaning, and patient decolonization efforts generates substantial decreases in the incidence of surgical site infection.
