We appreciate the thoughtful comments on our study. The impetus for the study was the recommendation in the 2011 American Academy of Pediatrics guidelines that ultrasonography be used to select those patients who should undergo voiding cystourethrography (VCU) after a first urinary tract infection (UTI). We all had anecdotal experience with cases of grade IV and V reflux associated with normal sonograms, but this observation had not been studied systematically. (Source: Urology)

Creating a Physician-Led Quality Imperative
Wed, 22 Oct 2014 00:00:00 +0100 | American Journal of Medical Quality
To emerge from a significant quality crisis, hospital administration recognized the need for physician leadership to drive improvements. A framework is presented for a physician-led Quality Summit to select best practice initiatives for implementation over 1 year. Results demonstrated statistically significant reductions in ventilator-associated pneumonia, decreasing from the first quarter 2009 baseline of 8.34 per 1000 ventilator days to 3.32 per 1000 ventilator days in second quarter 2010 (P = .0055). During the same time frame, catheter-associated urinary tract infections decreased from 4.35 per 1000 catheter days to 0.98 per 1000 catheter days (P = .0438), and severe sepsis/septic shock mortality declined from 33% to 13% (P = .0084).
