The researchers found that active surveillance for multidrug-resistant organisms was frequently reported during both study periods; the most common organism for which surveillance was performed was methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus in both 2013 and 2018 (90 and 69 percent of facilities, respectively).
It may also dramatically reduce the number of repeat follow-up operations for 'low risk' patients on active surveillance.
