- •Risk factors associated with urinary tract infections caused by multidrug-resistant organisms in skilled nursing facilities were investigated.
- •The mean predicted probability of urinary tract infections and improper collection of specimens was inversely dependent on the facility's overall star rating.
- •The presence of multidrug-resistant organisms highly correlated with the type of nursing care received.
