UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital Antimicrobial Susceptibility: Staphylococcus aureus Susceptibility Among Outpatients

Susceptibilities are based on isolates submitted from pediatric outpatients to UCSF Clinical Microbiology Laboratory in 2019-2021.

CEX-cephalexin (inferred from nafcillin), CLIN-clindamycin, DOX-doxycycline, T/S-trimethoprim/sulfamethoxazole

Values are % of strains testing susceptible to listed antibiotic. Isolate numbers and 95% confidence intervals are provided to gauge precision of the susceptibility estimate.
