Researchers have developed a clinical prediction tool to estimate the probability of third-generation cephalosporin-resistant Enterobacteriaceae, carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae (CRE), and multidrug-resistant (MDR) Pseudomonas aeruginosa occurring in hospitalized adult patients with confirmed community- and hospital-acquired gram-negative infections, according to study results published in BMC Infectious Diseases. Moreover, this prediction tool can be used as a user-friendly clinical instrument for use at the bedside.
