Rupp, 2016

Nebraska Medical Center suspended routine contact isolation precautions house wide for endemic MRSA and VRE. Hand hygiene, environmental cleaning/disinfection and Hibiclens bathing protocols were implemented and compliance monitored. Rates were compared from the 12 months before and 12 months after contact isolation precautions were discontinued showing no change in acquisition or infection rates for endemic MRSA and VRE.
