Expert Stewardship, Inc. has a phenomenal team of experts that guides and supports our team here at Beachside Nursing Center. With their assistance we have lowered our nosocomial infection rate, implemented antibiotic guidelines, and most importantly improved overall patient care. It has been such a big assistance to have every member of the team available when our team has questions, needs ongoing education, or guidance. Thank you Expert Stewardship!

Expert Stewardship has been phenomenal asset to our facility’s operations. Their antibiotic stewardship program has been praised by surveyors during our last two surveys. Their other programs and systems have helped us save money and maintain compliance. Dr. Robinson and Dr. McKinnell have done such an amazing job working with our facility’s physicians and our local hospitals to improve antibiotic usage. Their passion to provide the highest levels of patient care and regulatory compliance make Expert Stewardship an easy choice for our facility. I recommend Expert Stewardship to all administrators and operators I know.

Team Castle Manor Nursing and Rehab had been utilizing Expert Stewardship since 2017 and have had excellent results ever since. Dr. Robinson and Dr McKinnell are leaders in their field of Infection Prevention and are often consulted by California Department of Public Health and the Centers for Disease Control. Whenever I do my weekly calls with Danielle, I am very comfortable asking her infection control questions. Our building is well guided by this group and even when at one point we came across a patient in our building with challenging infection to deal with, Dr McKinnell picked up his phone and assisted us with our medical needs for that specific patient. Their Antimicrobial Stewardship program has a great effect on our patient care. With them around, we are very comfortable that we are administering the antibiotics for our patients and able to achieve optimal clinical outcomes related to antimicrobial use, minimize toxicity and other adverse events and of course at this same time reduces our healthcare cost for infection control. I highly recommend using Expert Stewardship for any SNF. All our nurses here at Castle Manor completed Expert Stewardship's Online Education for Healthcare Professionals and this is a PLUS.

We have been using Expert Stewardship since 2016 and have had excellent results ever since. Dr. Robinson and Dr. McKinnell are leaders in their field of Infection Prevention and are often consulted by California Department of Public Health and the Centers for Disease Control. They were very helpful with implementing OC Shield in our facility where we were able to decrease all infections in the county. Their Antimicrobial Stewardship program has a great effect on our patient care and the bottom dollar. If I ever have a question, they are ready to consult and provide the expertise to solve the issue regarding infection control and prevention. I highly recommend using Expert Stewardship for your facility.

The antibiotic stewardship has helped with unnecessary usage of antibiotics . The timeout calls have been effective in reducing the amount of days of antibiotics ordered. The education that is provided to the nurses is exceptional for every day practice.

Mock survey and even state and federal surveyors check on our antimicrobial stewardship binder and were very impressed!”
