After a careful literature review carried out by a multiprofessional team, some conclusions were made in order to guide(More)
INTRODUCTION Excessive group 2 carbapenem use may result in decreased bacterial susceptibility. OBJECTIVE We evaluated the impact of a carbapenem stewardship program, restricting imipenem and meropenem use. METHODS Ertapenem was mandated for ESBL-producing Enterobacteriaceae infections in the absence of non-fermenting Gram-negative bacilli (GNB) from(More)
