Abstract

In an intensive care unit, antibiotic heterogeneity led to an increase in antibiotic heterogeneity index (P =.002) and a reduction in carbapenem-resistance Enterobacteriaceae incidence (P =.04). In a general medicine unit with low prevalence of multidrug-resistant organisms, antibiotic heterogeneity index and incidence of multidrug-resistant organisms did not improve.
