In April-May 1991 the availability of antibiotic formularies in Dutch hospitals was analysed as well as data available on antibiotic susceptibility patterns.
In addition data on the use of different groups of antimicrobial agents (aminoglycosides, bêta-lactam compounds including aztreonam and imipenem, co-trimoxazole, vancomycin and fluoroquinolones) were collected by a questionnaire.
Thirty-eight formularies were received which were used in 78 hospitals.
No formulary was available from 31 hospitals: 15 hospitals did not intend to set up antibiotic guidelines, nine hospitals were using their first formulary and seven used a revised version of the existing one.
Fifteen formularies dated from 1987 or earlier.
