Trends in pediatric community-onset Staphylococcus aureus antibiotic susceptibilities over a five-year period in a multihospital health system

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

The epidemiology of community-onset Staphylococcus aureus infections is evolving. We performed a multihospital, retrospective study of pediatric community-onset S. aureus susceptibilities between 2015 and 2020. Oxacillin and clindamycin susceptibility remained lower at 67% and 75%, respectively. Tetracycline and trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole susceptibility remained high at >90%. Oxacillin susceptibility was highest in invasive infections.
