TGH Urgent Care powered by Fast Track Earns Antibiotic Stewardship Commendation

Tampa, Florida – TGH Urgent Care powered by Fast Track, located in Tampa, Florida, has earned the Antibiotic Stewardship Commendation from the Urgent Care Association (UCA) and College of Urgent Care Medicine (CUCM). In achieving this Commendation, TGH Urgent Care powered by Fast Track has demonstrated a commitment to responsible prescribing practices of antibiotics.

Dr. Nicole Frommann, Medical Director at TGH Urgent Care powered by Fast Track, explains “achieving the Antibiotic Stewardship Commendation from the UCA is important to our organization because it demonstrates our ongoing commitment to optimizing the use of antibiotics. Our goal is to adequately treat infections, while at the same time, protecting our patients and community from increased antibiotic resistance.”

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), each year in the U.S. at least 2 million people acquire an antibiotic-resistant infection, and at least 23,000 people die as a result of antimicrobial resistance. UCA and CUCM developed the Antibiotic Stewardship Commendation program to help urgent care centers design and implement comprehensive stewardship strategies.

In order to achieve the Commendation, UCA and CUCM require urgent care centers to provide evidence demonstrating their compliance with the Core Elements of Outpatient Antibiotic Stewardship developed by the CDC. The CDC program provides a framework for antibiotic stewardship in the outpatient setting focused on four key elements:

  • Commitment: Demonstrate dedication to and accountability for optimizing antibiotic prescribing and patient safety
  • Action for Policy and Practice: Implement at least one policy or practice to improve responsible prescribing and assess its efficacy with an Antibiotic Stewardship Quality Plan
  • Tracking and Reporting: Monitor antibiotic prescribing and offer regular feedback to clinicians
  • Education and Expertise: Provide educational resources to clinicians and patients on antibiotic prescribing and ensure access to needed expertise on optimizing prescribing practice

In earning the Antibiotic Stewardship Commendation, TGH Urgent Care powered by Fast Track has demonstrated that they are committed to safeguarding antibiotic use for future generations.  For more information about the Antibiotic Stewardship Commendation program, visit ucaoa.org/ABSCommendation.

The wait was minimum and the PA was very understanding. The staff at the front desk could be a bit more friendly. Other than that, good overall experience.
