Table HKSH. Antibiogram for common bacterial isolates, Hong Kong Sanatorium & Hospital, 2019

Key:
  1. Interpreted according to 2015 CLSI definition. Non-susceptible include both intermediate & resistant.
  2. ESBL, extended spectrum beta-lactamase.
  3. MRSA, Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus; CA-MRSA, Community associated Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus.
  4. Unless otherwise stated, the resistance figure is based on analysis of more than 10 isolates. When the number of isolates is ≤10, the actual number is indicated in parenthesis.
  5. For Streptococcus pneumoniae, Penicillin (parenteral) MIC ≤0.06 µg/mL (50.0%), MIC 0.09-1 µg/mL (43.0%), MIC 1.5-2 µg/mL (7.0%). % Penicllin (parenteral) sensitive: non-meningitis breakpoint at MIC ≤2 µg/mL = 100%
  •  indicate 10% or more increase in non-susceptibility rate compared to year 2018
  •  indicate 10% or more reduction in non-susceptibility rate compared to year 2018
