Abstract

Because bundle implementation in intensive care units to reduce methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus is challenging, we con- ducted in-depth interviews with implementation teams at 5 participating hospitals. Key lessons learned across hospitals included the following: maintain management support, engage frontline staff, build the right multidisciplinary team, conduct process mapping, and commit to data collection and feedback.
