Cusini, A; Rampini, S K; Bansal, V; Ledergerber, B; Kuster, S P; Ruef, C; Weber, R (2010). Different patterns of inappropriate antimicrobial use in surgical and medical units at a tertiary care hospital in Switzerland: a prevalence survey. PLoS ONE, 5(11):e14011.

Abstract

Audits of individual patient care provide important data to identify local problems in antimicrobial prescription practice. In our study, antimicrobial prescriptions without indication, and divergence from institutional guidelines were frequent errors. Based on these results, we will tailor education, amend institutional guidelines and further develop the infectious diseases consultation service.
