Association between Airborne Infection Isolation Room Utilization Rates and Healthcare Worker COVID-19 Infections in Two Academic Hospitals.

Michael Klompas, Shangyuan Ye, Vineeta Vaidya, Aileen Ochoa, Meghan A Baker, Karen Hopcia, Dean Hashimoto, Rui Wang, Chanu Rhee,

We compared healthcare worker SARS-CoV-2 infection rates between March-August 2020 in two similar hospitals with high versus low airborne infection isolation room utilization rates but otherwise identical infection control policies. We found no difference in healthcare worker infection rates between the two hospitals nor between patient-facing vs non-patient-facing providers. ... Read more >>

Low Risk of Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) Among Patients Exposed to Infected Healthcare Workers.

Meghan A Baker, Karen Fiumara, Chanu Rhee, Sarah A Williams, Robert Tucker, Paige Wickner, Andrew Resnick, Michael Klompas,

Many patients are fearful of acquiring coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) in hospitals and clinics. We characterized the risk of COVID-19 among 226 patients exposed to healthcare workers with confirmed COVID-19. One patient may have been infected, suggesting that the risk of COVID-19 transmission from healthcare workers to patients is generally ... Read more >>

What Is the Utility of Measuring Lactate Levels in Patients with Sepsis and Septic Shock?

Jeremy Weinberger, Michael Klompas, Chanu Rhee,

Elevations in blood lactate concentrations have been studied in sepsis and other disease states for decades and are well known to be associated with increased mortality. Many studies have also demonstrated the prognostic accuracy of serial lactate levels, and some have suggested that lactate clearance may be a useful therapeutic ... Read more >>

Surveillance for Healthcare-Associated Infections: Hospital-Onset Adult Sepsis Events Versus Current Reportable Conditions.

Brady Page, Michael Klompas, Christina Chan, Michael R Filbin, Sayon Dutta, Dustin S McEvoy, Roger Clark, Matthew Leibowitz, Chanu Rhee,

<h4>Background</h4>US hospitals are required by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services to publicly report central line-associated bloodstream infections (CLABSIs), catheter-associated urinary tract infections (CAUTIs), Clostridioidesdiffficile, methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus bacteremia, and selected surgical site infections for benchmarking and pay-for-performance programs. It is unclear, however, to what extent these conditions capture ... Read more >>

Incidence, Characteristics, and Outcomes of Ventilator-Associated Events during the COVID-19 Pandemic.

Jeremy Weinberger, Chanu Rhee, Michael Klompas, ,

<h4>Rationale</h4>Ventilator-associated event (VAE) surveillance provides an objective means to measure and compare complications that develop during mechanical ventilation by identifying patients with sustained increases in ventilator settings after a period of stable or decreasing ventilator settings. The impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on VAE rates and characteristics is unknown.<h4>Objectives</h4>To compare ... Read more >>

Universal Use of N95s in Healthcare Settings when Community Covid-19 Rates are High.

Michael Klompas, Chanu Rhee, Meghan Baker,

CDC now recommends N95 respirators for all providers seeing patients with possible or confirmed Covid-19. We suggest, however, that N95s may be just as important for the care of patients without suspected Covid-19 when community incidence rates are high. This is because SARS-CoV-2 is most contagious before symptom onset. Ironically, ... Read more >>

Duration of Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) Infectivity: When Is It Safe to Discontinue Isolation?

Chanu Rhee, Sanjat Kanjilal, Meghan Baker, Michael Klompas,

Defining the duration of infectivity of Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) has major implications for public health and infection control practice in healthcare facilities.
