Multidrug resistant bacterial (MDRO) and Clostridium difficile infections are threats to patient safety. Our eight-year study describes the burden of MDROs and Clostridium difficile and depicts changing trends over time in an integrated healthcare network. We will also describe the potential impact of new diagnostics to address the clinical challenges of MDROs and Clostridium difficile infections.
