Abstract

  Antimicrobial usage was monitored at our general hospital from 2001 to 2007, but the large number of medical departments have different protocols for use of antimicrobial drugs, including internal medicine, surgery, obstetrics and gynaecology. Consequently, total antimicrobial usage cannot analyze the actual situation of antimicrobial usage. The present study investigated the density of antimicrobial use (AUD) in each department, to clarify factors in any differences. Some groups of antimicrobial drugs were used at different frequencies and transitions depending on the guidelines followed in each department. Total antimicrobial usage in this hospital was greatly influenced by internal medicine use, so the antimicrobial usage in each department is important in analysis intended to change antimicrobial usage.
