Antibiotic Stewardship Team Superheroes

Antibiotic Stewardship Team

The Antibiotic Stewardship Team dressed as the “ASP Superheroes”  for  U. S Antibiotic Awareness Week and to remind staff it is everyone’s responsibility to use antibiotics responsibly. Here are a few tips:

  • only take antibiotics when they are prescribed by your doctor
  • if your doctor prescribes an antibiotic, make sure you take it according to the instructions – make sure you finish the course and don’t just stop because you’re feeling better
  • never share antibiotics with anyone else or use leftover antibiotics
  • wash your hands to help prevent the spread of infection in the first place – especially after using the bathroom, before preparing or eating food, after coughing or sneezing, or if your hands are visibly dirty
