As part of the Choosing Wisely campaign, experts have developed recommendations for improving hospital medicine for children and adults. Recommendations for pediatric care, reported in the Journal of Hospital Medicine, include forgoing chest radiographs in children with bronchiolitis or asthma and avoiding routine acid suppression therapy for gastroesophageal reflux in infants. Recommendations for adult care include refraining from red blood cell transfusion to meet arbitrary hemoglobin or hematocrit levels and not prescribing a prophylactic for stress ulcers in inpatient care.
