  1. Cefoxitin was used to detect methicillin-resistant Staphylococci.
  1. Overall prevalence of extended-spectrum β-lactamases (ESBL) were 31% for E.coli (35% in the group ≥ 3d of adm, 31% in the group within ≤2d of adm). ESBL-producing strains should be interpreted as resistant to all penicillins, cephalosporins and aztreonam.
  2. Overall prevalence of extended-spectrum β-lactamases (ESBL) were 7% for Klebsiella pneumoniae (6% in the group ≥3d of adm, 7% in the group within ≤2d of adm). ESBL-producing strains should be interpreted as resistant to all penicillins, cephalosporins and aztreonam.
