Objective. To describe antimicrobial resistance patterns for healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) reported to the National Healthcare Safety Network (NHSN) during 2009-2010. Methods. Central line-associated bloodstream infections, catheter-associated urinary tract infections, ventilator-associated pneumonia, and surgical site infections were included. Pooled mean proportions of isolates interpreted as resistant (or, in some cases, nonsusceptible) to selected antimicrobial agents were… 

Antimicrobial-Resistant Pathogens Associated With Healthcare-Associated Infections: Summary of Data Reported to the National Healthcare Safety Network at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 2011–2014

The distribution of frequent pathogens and some resistance patterns appear to have changed from 2009–2010, highlighting the need for continual, careful monitoring of these data across the spectrum of HAI types.

Antimicrobial-resistant pathogens associated with adult healthcare-associated infections: Summary of data reported to the National Healthcare Safety Network, 2015–2017

Pathogens varied by HAI and location type, with oncology units having a distinct pathogen distribution compared to other settings, and the %NS for most pathogens was significantly higher among device-associated HAIs than SSIs.

Pathogen Distribution and Antimicrobial Resistance Among Pediatric Healthcare-Associated Infections Reported to the National Healthcare Safety Network, 2011–2014

This report is the first pediatric-specific description of antimicrobial resistance data reported to the NHSN and will help identify priority targets for infection control and antimicrobial stewardship activities in facilities that provide care for children.

Ten-year resistance trends in pathogens causing healthcare-associated infections; reflection of infection control interventions at a multi-hospital healthcare system in Saudi Arabia, 2007–2016

Ten-year trends of resistance in pathogens causing HAIs in a tertiary care setting in Saudi Arabia were described and compared with those of US National Health Surveillance Network (NHSN), which showed increasing trends of carbapenem resistance and VRE, which may reflect heavy use ofcarbapenems and vancomycin.

Incidence and Pathogen Distribution of Healthcare-Associated Infections in Pilot Hospitals in Egypt

Type and rates of healthcare-associated infections as well as pathogen distribution and antimicrobial resistance patterns from a pilot HAI surveillance system in Egypt are reported to improve Infection control priorities in Egypt.

High contribution and impact of resistant gram negative pathogens causing surgical site infections at a multi-hospital healthcare system in Saudi Arabia, 2007–2016

GNPs in a tertiary care setting in Saudi Arabia are responsible for more than 60% of SSI with more resistant patterns than Western countries, and these patterns are significantly more frequent than in NHSN hospitals.

Healthcare-associated infections in intensive care units.

Infection control priorities in intensive care units should include preventing nosocomial pneumonia, blood stream infection, urinary tract infection and of deviceassociated infections.

Bacteriological Profile and Antimicrobial Resistance Pattern Among Healthcare-Associated Infections in a Pediatric Intensive Care Unit

It was observed that the use of carbapenem before an infection episode increased significantly, and the rate of carbAPenem resistance reached 100% over the years in Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Klebsiella spp.

There are still sufficient treatment options for patients infected with the most important bacterial species involved in infections in intensive care units, however, the situation for patients with Pseudomonas aeruginosa infections is critical.
