Abstract: Antibiotic resistance is a critical issue globally, with improper usage contributing to its rise. This study aims to assess antibiotic usage patterns in a tertiary hospital in East Godavari District, India. Through structured interviews and quantitative data analysis, this prospective observational study examines who patients first contact at the onset of symptoms, the antibiotics prescribed initially, and the subsequent antibiotics used at the tertiary hospital. The findings provide insights into potential areas for improving antibiotic stewardship.
