Longitudinal trends in antibiotic resistance in US nursing homes, 2000-2004



Longitudinal trends in antibiotic resistance in US nursing homes, 2000-2004



Infection Control and Hospital Epidemiology 28(8): 1006-1008



We evaluated antibiotic resistance trends in US nursing homes using the Minimum Data Set. Significant increases in the number and proportion of infections caused by antibiotic-resistant bacteria were documented over the 5-year study. Further research on antibiotic resistance in nursing homes is urgently needed.
