Table UCH-2. Antibiogram for blood culture isolates, United Christian Hospital, 2016

  1. Non-duplicate isolates from all units. Interpreted according to CLSI.
  2. Urine isolates only
  3. ESBL-producing rates were 27.3% for E. coli and 13.8% for Klebsiella spp
  4. Second line antimicrobials will not be tested for non-invasive isolates (e.g urine isolates) if they are sensitive to first line drugs
  5. 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
