MERCED, Calif.—Merced High School senior Brianna Dartas never considered herself a role model.

In fact, the 17-year-old’s life story overlaps the experiences of many a high school dropout.

Dartas, who was raised by a single mom, worked part time to help the family. They were poor and lived in a tough neighborhood known for gangs and crime. Many of her peers from the same background have already dropped out of school, but she did not give up. Dartas, of Native American and Latino descent, will be graduating this year and she plans to attend college.

Investigators from the Ontario Agency for Health Protection and Promotion, Canada and from the University Health Network in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, sought to determine if positive deviance (PD) can reduce healthcare-associated resistant organisms, specifically methicillin-resistant S. aureus (MRSA), vancomycin-resistant Enterococci (VRE), and C. difficile.

Five acute care hospitals were recruited to implement PD at six sites. Data on four-month resistant organism-related infection rates, the volume of alcohol handrub and soap used, and the number of gowns and gloves used, were collected at baseline and then for 12 months prospectively. Social network mapping was conducted at the project start and end. Qualitative staff interviews were conducted at the project end. The percent change from baseline in quarterly resistant organism-related infection rates were measured from September 2009 to December 2010. Process measures were collected and measured in a similar fashion.
