Description

Summary

This is a cluster-randomized trial of nursing homes to assess whether decolonization with routine chlorhexidine bathing and periodic use of nasal antiseptics can reduce hospitalizations associated with infections, antibiotic utilization, and multi-drug resistant organism (MDRO) prevalence. The comparator arm will be routine bathing care.
