Abstract

Unnecessarily broad-spectrum antibiotic prescribing for ambulatory pediatric urinary tract infection may result from clinicians not having antibiograms specific to this population. Comparing an existing hospital-based with a proposed ambulatory uropathogen antibiogram for children in Utah, Escherichia coli accounted for a larger percentage and was more susceptible to narrower-spectrum antibiotics, demonstrating the potential need for ambulatory pediatric antibiograms.
