I became director of infectious diseases at Johns Hopkins Bayview in November 2003. At that time, the
Division had 2 full time faculty members, no active clinical research, and had a deficit approaching
$100,000 annually. I have had full responsibility for developing strategic initiatives and budgets, identifying
staff needs, developing clinical services, and developing an infection control and epidemiology program.
Division Expansion Since 2005, I have expanded the division to 8 faculty (FY 09) with $2.5 extramural
support, excluding pending grants and contracts. Our funding includes NIH, CDC, US Defense Department
and commercial grants and contracts. From the standpoint of clinical services, we have quadrupled clinical
practice outpatient visits (>1,300 year) , increased inpatient consults by 2.5-fold, and quintupled clinical
revenues. Our clinical practice has continued to grow and we have become recognized as a regional
Developing Hospital Epidemiology Program We have developed a strong hospital epidemiology
program, This included implementing an multidisciplinary and aggressive antibiotic management team
(Infectious Diseases, Hospitalists, Pharnacy), and focusing on antibiotic and restriction policies, formulary
management and antibiotic detailing conducted as a peer intervention by hospitalists and pharmacy. Perdiem antibiotic costs at the hospital have declined in real dollars by 22% since 2003. In 2008-9, after
implementation of aggressive antibiotic approval policies, our incidence of C.difficil diarrhea decreased by
>50%. We have also increased the hospital infection control staff, and I have supervised investigation of
multiple outbreaks, including a cluster of prosthetic joint infections, norovirus, MRSA, and meningococcal
exposures. We have increased influenza vaccination rates in clinical staff from 40% to 77%.
Burn and Wound Infections We have developed research interests and programs in burn infections and
chronic wound infections. The Johns Hopkins Bayview Burn Center, which serves all of Maryland and
surrounding areas. In 2005, we instituted an infectious disease care model where all patients were comanaged by an ID specialist. As a result, in the first year, we reduced infection related mortality by 70%,
and we have eliminated systemic fungal infection as clinical entity in the Burn Center. Simultaneously,
working with Dermatology, we are developing a chronic wound care program, focusing on developing
clinical care initiatives and research into the microbiology and descriptive epidemiology of chronic wounds,
using both traditional and molecular microbiology. Our burn and wound activities are supported in part with
grants from the US Defense Department
