Abstract

A Trust strategy to reduce ciprofloxacin use was implemented at a University hospital. This study aimed to investigate whether the susceptibility of Gram-negative organisms (GNO) to alternative antimicrobials (co-amoxiclav, doxycycline, aztreonam, piperacillin/tazobactam, meropenem and gentamicin) changed, and whether there was any relationship between GNO susceptibility to these antimicrobials and ciprofloxacin usage.
