Abstract

To assess current use of vancomycin for methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus bacteremia, we surveyed adult infectious disease physicians. Most respondents reported personal experience with infections failing to respond to vancomycin despite minimum inhibitory concentration data indicating susceptibility. In a hypothetical case of such an infection, most would change to daptomycin with or without other agents.
