Sandra Nelson, MD, Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston, MA

I am an Infectious Disease clinician at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) in Boston. After completing medical training at Duke University, the University of Michigan Medical Center in Ann Arbor, and Johns Hopkins in Baltimore, I joined the faculty of MGH and Harvard Medical School in Boston in 2007. At MGH I am primarily a clinician, practicing in both general infectious diseases and HIV care. My academic interests are two-fold and relate to the diagnosis and management of musculoskeletal infections, along with the safe administration of IV antimicrobial therapy in the home setting. At MGH I collaborate with others interested in the care of musculoskeletal infections through quality improvement protocol development, education and case-management expertise, and research. Additionally I direct the program in Outpatient Parenteral Antimicrobial Therapy (OPAT), which has studied and improved upon existing efforts to serve patients who are being discharged from the hospital on parenteral antimicrobial therapy. We aim to foster patient safety by preventing and/or facilitating earlier recognition of adverse reactions, by optimizing communication for patients and care providers, and by minimizing hospital readmission.
