The collected data were analyzed using SPSS software (ver-19) applying descriptive statistics (frequency and perrentage) and Chi-square test. Results: 24% of patients had consumed Ceftriaxone, 72.1 % Keflin and 3.9% had recievd Cefazolin. The prescribed dose results showed 87% of compatibility with the guidelines. Regarding the prescription method, 86.4% compatiblity was reported with the guidelines. In total, 68.8% of the prescribed antibiotics were matched with managed care instruction of number (8) in terms of their type.
