Curt Lindberg, Plexus Institute’s chief learning and research officer, is quoted in the June 2009 issue of Briefings on Infection Control published by HCPro, Inc. Curt discusses the impact of using the Positive Deviance method in hospitals.

"[sites that participated in the Positive Deviance MRSA Prevention Partnership] were very interested in the methodology because they had all tried many of the typical and standard approaches to improving quality and MRSA prevention and were not seeing really good results from those efforts, so they were kind of frustrated and open to new approaches.”

"[Frontline staff] are the ones that have contact with patients and families, and are in and out of rooms, and are moving equipment around, so they know what’s going on, and it’s their actions and behaviors that directly affect infections and infection prevention.”
