Updated Recommendations for Infection Control for Candida auris have been posted to the CDC website. This web document includes a section on infection control recommendations for C. auris in dialysis centers and infusion centers.

For those who are interested, CDC’s National Healthcare Safety Network (NHSN) Dialysis Event Surveillance Report for 2014 was published online and CJASN created a visual feature for the article. The article also had an accompanying editorial published in CJASN, entitled ‘Infection Monitoring in Dialysis Units: A Plea for “Cleaner” Data’.
