Long hospital stays and invasive medical tests help identify serious bacterial infections in infants, but a U-M expert says there may be a more efficient, less painful way to make a diagnosis.

A Michigan Medicine nurse recently studied how to reduce urinary retention issues in patients anesthetized for outpatient surgery. Now, her work has wider potential.
A new understanding of the interaction among multidrug-resistant bacteria, and how antibiotics affect them, could lead to better infection prevention.
A collaborative approach with external coaching support makes gains and holds potential to be used for other patient safety issues, researchers say.
As antibiotic resistance to the drugs used to treat UTIs grows, producing a vaccine to prevent them becomes more crucial. How one team is leading the way.
