Erratum to: Trends in antimicrobial resistance and empiric antibiotic therapy of bloodstream infections at a general hospital in mid-Norway: a prospective observational study

The original article was published in BMC Infectious Diseases 2017 17:116

Erratum

After publication of the original article [1] the authors found the following errors had occurred:

  1. 1.

    The y-axis of Fig. 3 has been incorrectly titled ‘Percent’. The correct title is ‘Number of episodes’. (Fig. 3).

  1. 2.

    The legend of Fig. 3 did not contain correct information on the figure.

Fig. 3
figure1

Number of BSI episodes with microbe(s) non-susceptible to penicillin-gentamicin-metronidazole (PGM) through three time periods. Additional file 1: Table S5 shows the PGM non-susceptible microbes in detail. The percentages of episodes with microbe(s) non-susceptible to PGM were 1.9%, 3.0%, and 5.2% in 2002–2005, 2006–2009, and 2010–2013, respectively. ANS, acquired non-susceptibility; INS, inherent non-susceptibility

The legend on Fig. 3 was originally labelled:

Microbes non-susceptible to penicillin-gentamicin-metronidazole (PGM) through three time periods. (Additional file 1: Table S5 shows the PGM non-susceptible microbes in detail) ANS, acquired non-susceptibility; INS, inherent non-susceptibility

However, this has been corrected to:

Number of BSI episodes with microbe(s) non-susceptible to penicillin-gentamicin-metronidazole (PGM) through three time periods. Additional file 1: Table S5 shows the PGM non-susceptible microbes in detail. The percentages of episodes with microbe(s) non-susceptible to PGM were 1.9%, 3.0%, and 5.2% in 2002–2005, 2006–2009, and 2010–2013, respectively. ANS, acquired non-susceptibility; INS, inherent non-susceptibility (Fig. 3)

A corrected version of the figure is included in this Erratum:
