BACKGROUND/PURPOSE Community-acquired pneumonia (CAP) and healthcare-associated pneumonia (HCAP) may be caused by potential antimicrobial drug-resistant (PADR) microbes. The aims of this study were to evaluate the incidences and risk factors associated with PADR microbes observed in patients with pneumonia occurring outside the hospital setting in Taiwan. METHODS We conducted a retrospective study of patients with CAP or HCAP admitted to six medical centers in the northern, central, and… CONTINUE READING
