DHHS Releases First Annual Statewide Antibiogram

The New Hampshire Department of Public Health Services (DPHS), Healthcare Associated Infections (HAI) Program has published the first annual statewide antibiogram for the 2016 calendar year. The report is available at: https://www.dhhs.nh.gov/dphs/cdcs/hai/publications.htm.

Antibiograms provide a summary of antibiotic susceptibility patterns for select bacterial pathogens and antibiotics.  The attached document includes an executive summary, written collaboratively by infectious disease experts across the state of New Hampshire, and the statewide antibiogram for non-urine and urine source isolates. This information, when combined with clinical expertise, should guide antimicrobial treatment for patients.

The statewide antibiogram is the first of many statewide initiatives to develop a coordinated approach to antimicrobial stewardship and fighting resistance. You can learn more about antimicrobial stewardship and NH initiatives at: https://www.dhhs.nh.gov/dphs/cdcs/antimicrobial.htm. I hope you share our excitement for this important work and please feel free to pass this along to others you think may find it interesting and useful, post to your website, and/or share with other contacts.  We also would be happy to present at future meetings if requested.

If you do have any questions about the state antibiogram or about the various statewide antimicrobial resistance initiatives in NH, please feel free to reach out to myself or the NH Healthcare Associated Infections Program at haiprogram@dhhs.nh.gov or (603) 271-4496.
