Table UCH-1. Antibiogram for common bacterial isolates, United Christian Hospital, 2016
- Non-duplicate isolates from all units. Interpreted according to CLSI.
- Urine isolates only.
- ESBL-producing rates were 27.3% for E. coli and 13.8% for Klebsiella spp
- Second line antimicrobials will not be tested for non-invasive isolates (e.g urine isolates) if they are sensitive to first line drugs.
- In S. pneumoniae, MIC ≤ 0.06 (=susceptible to oral penicillin), MIC ≤ 2 (=susceptible to parenteral penicillin) for non-CSF isolates. Susceptibility to azithromycin & clarithromycin can be predicted by testing erythromycin.
