LAP Lambert Academic Publishing Knowledge about the trends in antimicrobial susceptibility patterns in different settings is very important for rational antibiotic utilization.It is very important in areas where empiric therapy is common. Due to the lack of personnel and equipment, bacterial infections are mostly treated empirically in Nigeria, hence, the knowledge of prevailing antibacterial susceptibility patterns is essential.

The study setting was a general hospital and a private clinic in Rivers State, Nigeria.
