UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital Antimicrobial Susceptibility Gram-positives Inpatients/ED

N/A - testing NOT APPLICABLE to organism. PCN - penicillin, NAF - nafcillin, CLIN - clindamycin, CIP - ciprofloxacin, DOX - doxycycline, T/S - trimethoprim/sulfamethoxazole, VANC - vancomycin

Values are % of isolates testing susceptible to listed antibiotic. Unless indicated, results are for all inpatient/ED locations and culture sites. 

For all organisms, the number of isolates and susceptibilities are based on combined data from 2016-2018. Isolate numbers and 95% confidence intervals are provided to guage precision of susceptibility estimates.

Streptococcus pneumoniae

There were too few pediatric isolates of Streptococcus pneumoniae at UCSF in 2016-2018 to report reliable susceptibility estimates. For decision-making about empiric therapy, click here for national surveillance data.
