Monsees E, Goldman J, Vogelsmeier A, et al. Am J Infect Control. 2020.

There is a scarcity of literature on the role nurses play in antibiotic stewardship (AS). This article describes the results of a multisite survey of nurse perceptions of AS practices. Statistical analyses of 558 survey responses indicate that nurses identify with their role in AS processes but believe hospital safety culture inhibits their work in this area.
