Antibiotic resistance is the ability of bacteria to adapt to the effect of antibiotics and to resist them. Antibiotics are a key element of modern medicine, allowing, for example, bacterial infections (e.g. pneumonia, sepsis) to be treated, surgery to be performed more safely, and organ transplants to be carried out. Growing antibiotic resistance is a worrying phenomenon, which means bacterial infections are more difficult to treat, or in some cases can no longer be treated. Antibiotic resistance causes death, longer stays in hospital and higher costs for healthcare systems. Worldwide, the number of infections with antibiotic-resistant bacteria is rising. The indicator in the Swiss Atlas of Healthcare contains analyses on the resistance rates of different microorganism-antibiotic combinations (FQR-E.coli , ESCR-E.coli, ESCR-K.pneumoniae, MRSA , PNSP, VRE).
