Drug Resistance in Pneumonia (DRIP) Score
Please fill out required fields.
The goal of the DRIP Score is to determine when broad spectrum antibiotics should be used, both to be effective with treatment and to avoid increasing antibiotic resistance.
- A patient with a DRIP Score <4 can effectively be treated without broad-spectrum antibiotic coverage.
- A patient with a DRIP Score of ≥4 is more likely to require broad-spectrum antibiotic coverage.
