Infection Management

To assist in managing infections optimally, the laboratory staff at Coffs Harbour Health Campus Clinical Services have compiled a summary of all the positive culture organisms for the last 12 months. This relates to hospital-based specimens and is divided into blood culture, urine culture and other cultures. The organisms have attached antibiotic sensitivities.

These resources can help guide decisions on antibiotic choice when de-escalating from broad spectrum antibiotics following a positive culture.
