Day by day microbes are getting resistance towards antibiotics due to unnecessary use, over and under dosing, improper duration of administration. Antibiotic resistance is among one of the major problems in the current scenario of the health care system. More common in developing countries as compared to developed countries. The study aims to improve prescribing patterns to avoid antimicrobial resistance in hospital. In the healthcare system, the trend of antibiotic resistance is being reviewed in the present paper. The primary studies have been screened from different databases, PMC, NLM, Scopus, and Google Scholar etc. All the information has been reviewed and considered after consulting with medical subject headings. Data from the different study shows that highest culture sensitivity in patients taking Amoxicillin, Ceftazidime, Ampicillin. It shows higher resistance drug among patients.
Various studies show that organism and microbes have been shown resistance towards antibiotics worldwide, which increase’s hospital stay, the economic burden to the patients and condition worsening. To effectively overcome this problem information about the antibiotic use, guidelines and norms were circulated and provided to health care providers. The ultimate goal is to recapitulate the optimal use of antibiotics in human health to reduce antibiotics resistant.
