The Joint Commission seeks comments from healthcare facilities about a proposed standard that would require organizations to establish antimicrobial stewardship programs. The purpose of the new standard is to decrease the use of antimicrobials whenever possible to prevent the creation of drug-resistant strains of disease.

The deadline to provide feedback via comments or completing a survey is December 30.
