OBJECTIVE To investigate the effect of screening specimens and different criteria for exclusion of duplicate isolates when surveillance of antimicrobial resistances is performed. MATERIALS AND METHODS Trends in resistance were analysed for recent isolates of selected organisms from Guy's and St Thomas' Hospitals with the use of various criteria for the exclusion of duplicates, including time since the last isolate and antibiogram pattern, and the effect of excluding screening specimens… CONTINUE READING
