Select a site to view its antibiogram


Antibiograms are generated by the compilation of susceptibility results from all ‘first’ clinical isolates of a specific pathogen recovered from an individual patient per calendar year. That is, only the first isolate within a 14-day period, regardless of specimen type or body site, is selected for analysis. The rationale for this referral period is based on the need to represent ‘wild-type’ susceptibility profiles and avoid over-representing antimicrobial resistance that may develop de novo during a patient’s prolonged hospital stay. Susceptibility rates for patient groups (ie. age or ward location) represented by less than 30 isolates of a pathogen are not calculated due to the limited statistical significance and interpretive value.
