Abstract

In this review of 200 charts, piperacillin-tazobactam usage was analyzed at a pediatric tertiary hospital, with an assessment of the indications for initiation, and continuation at day 3 of usage. Significant cost savings could be obtained with antibiotic stewardship audit on day 3 of antibiotic administration.
