Multidrug resistant organisms (MDROs) and healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) are associated with increased lengths of hospital stay, increased costs, and increased mortality. We explore the scope of MDRO HAIs in children, current MDRO HAI prevention practices and data to support these practices, and we propose research topics targeting MDRO HAI prevention in children.
