Clinical and Microbiologic Characteristics of Cephalosporin-Resistant E. Coli-PITT Protocol
The purpose of this study is to review patients with E. coli infections at UPMC from September 1, 2008 to August 31, 2010 to determine if these infections have arisen in the community rather than in hospitals or nursing homes and determine their clinical outcomes.
The specific aims of this study are to:
- Review whether cephalosporin-resistant E. coli infections are hospital-acquired, healthcare-associated or community-associated.
- Determine the clinical outcome of the patients according to the antibiotics given.
