Partners for Patient Safety Program

Early Detection of Multidrug Resistant Organisms and Infection Prevention

Partners for Patient Safety: Early Detection and Infection Prevention (PPS) is a partnership between CDC, DOH, Local Health Jurisdictions (LHJ), and participating healthcare facilities to identify patients who are unknowingly colonized with targeted multidrug resistant organisms (MDRO) so that appropriate infection prevention measures can be implemented to prevent spread. DOH and LHJs are recruiting the following facilities to perform screening for targeted MDROs such as carbapenemase producing organisms and Candida auris.
