Abstract

We evaluated the association between infectious disease consultation and bloodstream infection outcomes, including methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, Candida, and Pseudomonas. No infectious diseases consultation was associated with over 4-fold increased hazard of death at 3 months and 6-fold increased hazard of death in hospital.
