Özet

Objective: Antibiotic-resistant infections represent a significant global public health threat due to their rising prevalence. The aim of this study is to identify risk factors for acquisition of multidrug-resistant gram negatives (MDR-GNs) in the first intensive care unit (ICU) infection episode of patients and also to calculate the economic burden of infection with MDR-GNs that the ICU patient faced.
