Reminder About Antimicrobial Use Guidelines

The Cedars-Sinai Antimicrobial Stewardship Committee publishes specific antimicrobial use guidelines, incorporating current literature and local resistance patterns. Resources include empiric treatment recommendations for frequently encountered bacterial and fungal infections, as well as recommendations for duration of antimicrobial therapy.

These resources can be accessed through CS-Link™ via Web Activities > Medication Guidelines, or directly from antimicrobial orders, via a reference link found below the drug product.

The guides are available on the Cedars-Sinai intranet.

Assistance with antimicrobial recommendations is available from antimicrobial stewardship pharmacists Monday through Friday, 8 a.m.-5 p.m. The pharmacists can be reached at 310-423-5352.
