Abstract

To address appropriateness of antibiotic use, we implemented an electronic framework to evaluate antibiotic "never events" (NEs) at 2 medical centers. Patient-level vancomycin administration records were classified as NEs or non-NEs. The objective framework allowed capture of true-positive vancomycin NEs in one-third of patients identified by the electronic strategy.
