Aims: Rising antimicrobial resistance rates among bacterial pathogens have resulted in increasing morbidity and mortality in nosocomial bloodstream infections. Methods: We conducted an observational study to evaluate the trend of etiological pathogens causing nosocomial bloodstream infections from 1996 to 2000 at the National Cheng Kung.. The access to the whole abstract and the presentation file is available to FIP members and to congress participants of that specific congress.
