Clark County Antibiogram

The Clark County Antibiogram represents data from eleven hospital laboratories and two commercial laboratories in Clark County. Several of the Clark County hospitals, hospital systems, and commercial laboratories in Clark County are not participating in this beneficial project. Participating laboratories reported antibiotic susceptibility testing results to Southern Nevada Health District for the time period of January 1, 2018 to December 31, 2018. The report includes inpatient data in acute care hospitals and long-term care facilities, and outpatient data in the community. Data represents only bacterial isolates collected for diagnostic purposes; no surveillance cultures are included. Only final, verified test results from the first isolate per person, regardless of culture source within the timeframe, are included. The Clark County Antibiogram summarizes the antibiotic resistance patterns among the most common microorganisms detected in 2018. Only organisms with testing data for ≥ 30 isolates are included in the antibiogram.
