Details of the Request

I would like the figures of:

  • Cases of antibiotic resistant bacterial infections in the hospital from 2010 onward, by calendar year.

 

Please use the following definition of important antibiotic resistance.

MDR (multidrug resistance) was defined as acquired non-susceptibility to at least one agent in three or more antimicrobial categories, XDR was defined as non-susceptibility to at least one agent in all but two or fewer antimicrobial categories (i.e. bacterial isolates remain susceptible to only one or two categories) and PDR was defined as non-susceptibility to all agents in all antimicrobial categories.

  • Figures of Carbapenem-resistant enterobacteriaceae
  • Figures of PVL-MRSA cases
  • Figures of C.difficile cases
  • Figures of E.coli
  • Please make a distinction between which were fatal and which were not fatal.
