Healthcare workers are exposed to a wide range of hazards in the workplace every day. Those hazards include drug-resistant organisms. Antibiotics and similar drugs are called antimicrobial agents. They have been used for 70 years to treat patients with infectious diseases and have resulted in a decreased death rate from infectious diseases. However, antibiotics have been used for so long that the targeted infectious organisms have adapted to them. For this reason, the drugs have become less effective. Our goal today is to help you understand what these organisms are, the risks they present and how to avoid transmission.
