This study was conducted in order to discover if patients develop less of an antibiotic resistance when going through intravenous antibiotics, compared to using oral antibiotics. This concept was created due to the fact that many people that are prescribed oral antibiotics, do not finish the entire prescribed amount. When this occurs, it gives the bacteria that the antibiotics were trying to get rid of, have the chance to adapt and become resistant to the particular antibiotic. By discovering the percentage of people who were prescribed antibiotics that never finished a round of them, it aids in narrowing down what the best course of action would be to aid in further preventing the spread of antibiotic resistance.
