  • NEW STUDY SHOWS THAT SKIN INFECTION PATIENTS ONLY ADHERE TO JUST HALF OF THEIR ANTIBIOTIC REGIME

 

 

 

Patients with Staphylococcus aureus skin and soft tissue infections took an average of 57% of their antibiotic doses after being discharged from the hospital, a new study published in Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy reported. Researchers added that close to half of these patients acquired a new infection or needed additional treatment for the existing infection. 
 
Study authors from the Los Angeles Biomedical Research Institute measured antibiotic dosing by using medication containers fitted with electronic caps that documented when patients opened the pill container. This method allowed researchers to detect a large discrepancy in patient reports and electronic measurement. Patients had reported taking, on average, 96% of their prescribed medication, nearly double the 57% that was reported by the electronic caps.
