Type of bacterial isolates and antimicrobial resistance profile from different clinical samples at a Referral Hospital, Northwest Ethiopia: five years data analysis

  11 September 2019

In this study authors provided 5 years bacteriological and AMR data of the DMRH. The major proportion at 71% of the isolates were Gram-negatives which found fully resistant to ampicillin and greater than 60% resistance was noted against co-trimoxazole, doxycycline, gentamicin, norfloxacin, tetracycline. Therefore, as there is no well-standardized bacteriological and AMR surveillance system in the study area, regular monitoring of the etiologic agents and their antibiotic resistance profile should be evaluated for better patient management.
