  1. MDR multi-drug resistant
  2. a Proteus, Morganella, Serratia, Citrobacter, Enterobacter spp.
  3. A: presence of ESBL production or resistance against this antibacterial agent or group is sufficient to define the microorganism as being MDR
  4. B: resistance against 2 antibacterial agents or against at least 2 of the indicated groups is required to define the microorganism as being MDR
  5. C: resistance against 3 antibacterial agents or against antimicrobial agents from at least 3 of the indicated groups is required to define the microorganism as being MDR
