I was wondering if any of your facilities routinely prescribe prophylactic antibiotics to AML or ALL patients during periods of prolonged neutropenia in an attempt to reduce blood stream infections? If so what antibiotic regimen do you use, and what effects have you seen on your CLABSI/MBI rate?
I appreciate any information you have. Thank you!
