Abstract

Urinary isolates and antimicrobial resistance of a primary hospital representing community were analyzed. The β-lactam and aminoglycoside resistances of E. coli and P. aeruginosa were lower than that seen in a tertiary hospital. Imipenem-resistant P.aeruginosa or VRE was not isolated; however the prevalence of ESBL was thought to be similar to that observed in a tertiary hospital. (Ann Clin Microbiol 2013;16:145-148)
