The authors show how the adoption and implementation of a Hospital Treatment Handbook can be an incisive tool in the ambit of pharmaceutical economics as a means of cutting pharmaceutical expenditure. The subject of this study was expenditure on antibiotics treatment at Rossano Hospital with regard to cepha-losporins. The results, namely a reduction of around 25% in expenditure on antibiotics, confirm the value of an instrument like the Hospital Treatment Handbook that is often undervalued or poorly managed.
