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… Expand
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
TLDR
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. Expand
Antimicrobial-resistant pathogens associated with adult healthcare-associated infections: Summary of data reported to the National Healthcare Safety Network, 2015–2017
TLDR
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. Expand
Pathogen Distribution and Antimicrobial Resistance Among Pediatric Healthcare-Associated Infections Reported to the National Healthcare Safety Network, 2011–2014
TLDR
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. Expand
Prevalence of health care-associated infections and antimicrobial resistance of the responsible pathogens in Ukraine: Results of a multicenter study (2014-2016).
TLDR
Health care-associated infections and increasing antimicrobial resistance present a significant burden to the Ukraine hospital system and infection control priorities in hospitals should include preventing surgical site infections, respiratory tract infections, bloodstream infections, and urinary tract infections. Expand
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
TLDR
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. Expand
High Burden of Resistant Gram Negative Pathogens Causing Device-associated Healthcare Infections in a Tertiary Care Setting in Saudi Arabia, 2008-2016.
TLDR
The current findings showed heavier and more resistant contribution of GNPs to DA-HAIs in Saudi hospitals compared with American hospitals, with higher resistance rates in Klebsiella and Escherichia coli are alarming and call for effective antimicrobial stewardship programs. Expand
Incidence and Pathogen Distribution of Healthcare-Associated Infections in Pilot Hospitals in Egypt
TLDR
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. Expand
High contribution and impact of resistant gram negative pathogens causing surgical site infections at a multi-hospital healthcare system in Saudi Arabia, 2007–2016
TLDR
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. Expand
Device-Associated Infections among Neonatal Intensive Care Unit Patients: Incidence and Associated Pathogens Reported to the National Healthcare Safety Network, 2006–2008
TLDR
With the exception of VAP, pooled mean NICU incidence rates did not differ between children's and general hospitals; rates of infection between hospital types were compared, only pooled mean VAP rates were significantly lower in children's hospitals than in general hospitals among neonates weighing 1,000 g or less. Expand
Prospective surveillance of healthcare-associated infections and patterns of antimicrobial resistance of pathogens in an Italian intensive care unit
TLDR
The majority of HAIs in the ICU studied were associated with the use of invasive devices, and reinforcement of the evidence-based preventive procedures are needed. Expand

TLDR
The frequency of selected antimicrobial resistance patterns among pathogens causing device-associated and procedure-associated healthcare-associated infections reported by hospitals in the National Healthcare Safety Network (NHSN) is described. Expand
Assessment of pathogen occurrences and resistance profiles among infected patients in the intensive care unit: report from the SENTRY Antimicrobial Surveillance Program (North America, 2001).
TLDR
Cefepime and the carbapenems (imipenem or meropenem) for Gram-negative isolates and linezolid for gram-positive isolates, provided the broadest spectrum of in vitro activity against contemporary ICU pathogens in North America. Expand
Trends in antimicrobial susceptibility of bacterial pathogens isolated from patients with bloodstream infections in the USA, Canada and Latin America. SENTRY Participants Group.
TLDR
These data demonstrate widespread antimicrobial resistance in Canada, Latin America and the USA, with a notable increase in oxacillin-resistance among staphylococci. Expand
Antimicrobial treatment for Intensive Care Unit (ICU) infections including the role of the infectious disease specialist.
TLDR
Despite new antibacterial agents such as linezolid, and also tigecycline and daptomycin, now being available for the treatment of infections due to MDR micro-organisms, the best strategy for improving the cure rate and minimising the development of resistance, probably remains the infectious disease specialist consultation.

TLDR
The prevalence of multidrug resistance, defined as resistance to at least one extended-spectrum cephalosporin, one aminoglycoside, and ciprofloxacin, increased substantially among ICU isolates of Acinetobacter spp. Expand

TLDR
In the Department of Defense population consisting of men and women of all ages from across the United States, the rates of both community-onset and hospital-onsets MRSA bacteremia decreased in parallel, while the proportion of community-ONSet SSTIs due to MRSA has more recently declined. Expand

TLDR
Comparative data on use and resistance among similar areas (i.e., ICU or other inpatient areas) can be used as a benchmark by participating hospitals to focus their efforts at addressing antimicrobial resistance. Expand
