We report a hospitalwide response to the influenza A (H1N1) pandemic that was necessary given the early surge of potential cases and issues that New York City hospitals encountered. Our response was novel in that an antimicrobial stewardship team promoted guidelines for the triaging, isolation, testing, and treatment of potential H1N1 suspects. The experience was an unexpected opportunity for our growing antimicrobial stewardship program.
