Antibiotic prescribing without documented indication in ambulatory care clinics: National cross sectional study

BMJ Dec 17, 2019

Ray MJ, et al. - In this cross-sectional study of 28,332 sample visits representing 990.9 million ambulatory care visits nationwide, experts recognized the incidence with which antibiotics that were prescribed in the absence of a recorded evidence in the ambulatory care setting, quantified the possible impact on evaluations of suitability of antibiotics, and determine patient, provider, and visit level features related to antibiotic prescribing without a reported evidence. This nationally representative study of ambulatory visits recognized a huge number of prescriptions for antibiotics which had a lack of a recorded indication, which could seriously prejudice national estimates of relevant antibiotic use in this setting. An extensive series of factors correlated with antibiotic prescribing without a reported indication was recognized, which could be beneficial in leading initiatives aimed at promoting superior documentation.
