21 C. difficile Testing Algorithm No Does the patient have unexplained diarrhea (greater than 3 or more liquid stools per day)? Yes Do not send C. difficile testing if no diarrhea as it can reflect asymptomatic colonization. No Does the patient have other signs of C. difficile infection? (fever, elevated WBC, abdominal distention) Yes Important Phone Numbers: Infection Control: Infection Control Practitioner Cell: Infectious Disease: Pharm D Phone Numbers: x ; x Investigate other causes of diarrhea (ie. tube feeds, contrast, antibiotic associated). Discontinue orders for laxatives, stool softeners and unnecessary PPIs/antibiotics. Diarrhea persists Discuss case with Infection Control Consider sending C. difficile testing if other risk factors present (older age, antibiotic exposure, recent hospitalization, intraabdominal surgery. Multiple testing for C. difficile are not necessary as sensitivity of PCR is high. C. difficile testing is recommendedsend stool to lab immediately, especially if suspected on admission to capture community onset infection. Document indication in chart. Limit antibiotic therapy. Use Special (brown) Contact Precautions sign. Wash hands with soap and water. Use dedicated patient equipment and disinfect with bleach. Instruct patient not to use hallway bathroom and provide commode/bedpan. Educate visitors prior to entering patient s room. Contact Precautions can only be discontinued by Infection Control

33 Project Summary: Clostridium difficile Prevention Project Goals: Decrease and subsequently maintain the hospital Standardized Infection Ratio (SIR) <1.0. Reduce hospital onset C. difficile rates by 20% from 2015 rate of 11.3 to 9.1. Implementation of the C. difficile Tableau reporting for real-time tracking of unit and physician specific test ordering Develop comprehensive C. difficile prevention program Staff education/feedback regarding current state, goals and prevention program Team Members: Work Group Leader: Martin Griffel, MD Team Leader: Sadia Abbasi, MD Francina Singh, Healthcare Epidemiology Paul Murphy, Quality Improvement Eric Spitzer, MD, Laboratory Administration Gerald Kelly, MD, CMIO Cliff Roggemann, Environmental Services Martha Houlihan, Transport services supervisor Allison Copenhaver, ADN Medicine Laura Brooks, Nurse Manager Roderick Go, MD, Antibiotic Stewardship representative Melinda Monteforte, Pharmacy

34 Clostridium difficile spore Clostridium difficile ( C. d iff)

35 C. difficile infection is a result of two unique events Exposure to C. difficile Alteration of normal GI microbiota C. difficile infection (CDI) Healthcare facility Antibiotics Mild diarrhea Community Other Medications Fulminant colitis Sepsis Septic Shock Death

36

37 1. Ingestion of spores transmitted from other patients via the hands of healthcare personnel and environment 3. Altered lower intestine flora (due to antimicrobial use) allows proliferation of C. difficile in colon Background: Pathogenesis of CDI 4. Toxin A & B Production leads to colon damage +/- pseudomembrane 2. Germination into growing (vegetative) form Sunenshine et al. Cleve Clin J Med. 2006;73:

38 Why should you care about C. difficile? Prolonged hospital stays Increased readmissions Poor quality and financial outcomes Hospital onset C. difficile infections are reportable C. difficile falls under mandatory reporting events in NYS and is reported through the National Healthcare Safety Network (NHSN) This data is also used by other regulatory and rating agencies for benchmarking and pay for performance, including Center for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), Vizient (UHC)

39 Categorizing CDI Stony Brook uses CDC Criteria: Lab ID Event Reporting for CDI identification. Lab ID event reporting requires positive test results be used without clinical evaluation of the patient. It is based strictly on the number of hospital days between the date of patient admission and the date of specimen collection. 3 days = Community-onset (CO) > 3 days = Hospital-onset (HO)

40 What are Stony Brook University Hospital s outcomes for HO C. difficile? Historically, SBUH had been high outliers in both NHSN and NYSDOH reports

41 What can we do to improve outcomes for C. difficile?

42 Adopting Best Practices Strict hand hygiene. Washing hands with soap and water is the most effective way to prevent transmission. Alcohol DOES NOT kill C.difficile spores Early and reliable diagnosis Contact precautions for patients with confirmed or suspected CDI until ruled out Effective daily and terminal cleaning of CDI patient rooms. Stony Brook will use Hydrogen peroxide based disinfectant effective May 2016, thought to be most effective sporicidial. Compliance with C. difficile powerplans

43 Process Change 2016 & 2017 Progress Current EPR guardrails and alerts reviewed for functionality and best practice solutions Enhanced alert mechanisms were put into place with further review throughout 2016 Resident lock-out for C. difficile testing when laxatives are documented as administered within 24 hours Attending alert per CDC guidelines to avoid C. difficile testing when laxatives are documented as administered within 24 hours Alert extended to 36 hours to laxative administration in May 2016 Expand both Resident lock-out and Attending alert to include <3 documented stools within the previous 24 hour period as of June 2016 Alert extended to 48 hours for laxative administration in October 2016 This alert is monitored on a monthly basis for accuracy of functionality and to analyze which units and providers are bypassing the alert. Between bypasses per month Correlation of bypass and HO-CDI on a case by case basis Evidence of repeat lockouts by Residents

44

45 Process Change 2016 & 2017 Progress Developed an intensive education program which included both Learning Management System (LMS) review for all nursing staff, didactic training for all Nursing Educators, and in-person training for all medical services and resident groups. As of December 2016, over 3000 RN and CNA staff had been trained Expansion to all medical staff in 2017 Incorporated as part of annual recertification Antibiotic Stewardship enhanced to include the following processes for all high risk antibiotic orders Documented EPR indication on all orders 48 hour review by our Antibiotic Stewardship team Monday, Wednesday, Friday alerts to assess the need/route/dose Development of an IT Tableau C. difficile Dashboard Allows real-time tracking of Community Onset (CO) and Hospital onset (HO) C. difficile infections Current pilot testing with select team members

46 Process Change 2016 & 2017 Progress Clarification for Lab rejected specimens for unformed stool Review of current laboratory specimen rejection included Bristol Stool Chart types 1, 2, 3, and 4 Per CDC guidelines, recent efforts have ensured the lab will be rejecting type 5 & 6 samples as well testing only type 7 specimens Effective 11/17/16, the clinical laboratory will only accept specimens for Clostridium difficile PCR that are unformed/liquid stool [i.e., the specimen assumes the shape of the container (7 on the Bristol stool scale]. This change is based on the recommendation of the SBUH Preventing C. difficile Task Force and national guidelines ["test only patients with clinically significant diarrhea for C. difficile" (Infect Control Hosp. Epidemiol Sep;35 Suppl 2:S48-65)]. Intensive RCA reviews on all HO cases, including unit feedback and EPR alert compliance monitoring Development of a new case review tool Continued review of all HO cases Patient room correlation reviews Unit-based feedback

47 Bristol Stool Scale Allows for an objective nursing assessment and documentation NIH

48 Process Change 2016 Progress Room Turnover/Housekeeping improvements Began ATP testing to monitor satisfactory cleanliness. High touch surfaces have achieved increased compliance throughout 2017 (>80%). BioQuell machine room turnover o Repaired in 2016 and strategies in development for inclusion in C.diff + terminal cleaning Bioluminescence (ATP) / Glo Germ Hand washing audits for Housekeeping staff Total n : 402 Pass: 59.70% Caution: Fail: 15.42% 2016YTD High Touch Surfaces: YTD score 84.58% Manufacturers Guidelines 80% or better Above Target

49 Adopting Best practices Patients and visitors educational brochures are available on our Intranet under the Patient Safety First (PSF) site Also available from our print shop in both English & Spanish

50 Adopting Best Practices All proper isolation and room allocation procedures are outlined in our Infection Control Policy IC0022 When an order for a C. difficile PCR test is ordered by an authorized provider, the Electronic Medical Record (EMR) system automatically delivers an alert to the Nurses Task List indicating the need to initiate contact precautions. The RN initiates the isolation process as per SBUH Isolation Procedures. When a C. difficile test is reported as positive, initiated isolation precautions are continued. When a C. difficile test is reported as negative, the RN discontinues isolation.

51 Improvements and Achievements 49.5% decrease in Hospital Onset (HO) CDI volume achieved as of December 2017 with nearly 100 fewer HO CDI reported in comparison to SIR = 0.993, below our initial goal of < SIR = 0.766, below our stretch goal of <0.8 Laboratory CD testing volume has decreased by 42.6% with over 1300 fewer tests being performed in 2017 alone. This decrease is associated with more than $38,000 in laboratory testing reagent. Implementation of CDC C. difficile testing guidelines as validated IT guardrails Resident lock-out and Attending alert for C. difficile testing when laxatives are documented as administered within 48 hours Expanded alert to include both Resident lock-out and Attending alert for <3 documented stools within the previous 24 hour period Ongoing monitoring for alert bypass, compliance and patient safety

57 A Few Don ts Don t test asymptomatic patients. Colonization is more common than infection. Suspect CDI in patients who have received antibiotics in the previous 8-12 weeks and have 3 or more diarrheal stools in 24-hours Do NOT order testing: o On formed stools. Lab will automatically reject the order o As a test of cure o For patients receiving laxatives for 48 hours. Such orders placed by house staff will be cancelled and will need to be reviewed by attending and ordered if considered appropriate o As a part of septic work up if not clinically relevant Remember we do lab ID event reporting Appropriate test ordering is very important
