The Mater Misericordiae University Hospital Antimicrobial app provides antimicrobial recommendations for the treatment of infections in hospitalised patients. The recommendations reflect our approach to managing infections in the Mater Hospital and allows us to deliver our guidelines and clinical care bundles to medical staff on their own devices at the point of patient care.
All content is easily searchable. Colour-coded icons allow easy navigation to content sections.
Supporting information on how to prescribe antibiotics appropriately is provided in an introductory section then subsequent sections cover antimicrobial treatment recommendations for a range of infections from commonly encountered respiratory tract infections to severe sepsis and management of complex infections in patients with haematological conditions.
Other features include evidence-based guidelines on antimicrobial prophylaxis for surgical procedures including interventional radiological procedures. Antibiotic dosing guides including in renally-impaired, obese or pregnant patients are also included.
This app was developed by MEG Support Tools. The MEG Guidelines system provides a way for clinicians to deliver their guidelines, protocols and clinical practice guides to staff members on their own mobile devices. Access to this information at the point of care provides immediate guidance and helps to improve patient outcomes. For more information on the MEG system contact us through the developer links.
