Investigation of the antibiotic susceptibility patterns of pathogens causing nosocomial infections

Investigation of the antibiotic susceptibility patterns of pathogens causing nosocomial infections

Saudi Medical Journal 25(10): 1403-1409

Objective: The aim of this study is to determine the resistance patterns of bacteria causing nosocomial infections. The outcome of this resistance was followed for 3 years. Methods: This study was carried out during 2000 to 2002 at a university hospital in Turkey. The resistance patterns of 570 bacteria (390 Gram-negative, 180 Gram-positive) against meropenem, imipenem, ceftazidime, cefotaxime, cefepime, piperacillin/tazobactam, ciprofloxacin and tobramycin were investigated using the E-test.
