The California Department of Public Health (CDPH) is continuing to follow antimicrobial susceptibility trends from California hospitals. The California Antibiogram Project is a web-based surveillance system that gathers cumulative local antimicrobial susceptibility data from licensed California general acute care hospitals. The data gathered through this surveillance system will only be used by the Healthcare Associated Infections Program at CDPH to provide statewide and regional susceptibility trends. All data will be posted on the CDPH California Antibiogram Project website. No hospital-specific information will be shared or released if provided; only aggregate data will be reported.

Of note, this survey will cover susceptibility data from calendar year 2011 and may take up to 20 minutes to complete. If you would like a PDF of the survey prior to filling it out, please email

Please ensure that only ONE person, knowledgable about testing, reporting and susceptibility data from your hospital, fills out this survey.

Thank you for your assistance.
