The authors of this paper [1] would like to include some extra information regarding the methodology of this research. This information is provided below:

  • In the study, 830 various non-repeated clinical specimens were processed among which 76 (67 wound swab/pus samples, 5 catheter tips, 3 sterile body fluids and 1 tissue abscess) samples showed growth of S. aureus.

Appropriate changes to the text are listed below:

In the methods section of the abstract “830 various non-repeated clinical specimens” should replace “830 non-repeated pus/wound swab samples”.

In the methods section “A total of 830 various clinical samples” should replace “A total of 830 pus/wound swab samples”.

In the results section “Among total 830 various clinical samples processed” should replace “Among total 830 pus/wound swab samples processed”.

In the results section “Out of which, S. aureus was isolated from 76 (20.9%) samples (67 wound swab/pus samples, 5 catheter tips, 3 sterile body fluids and 1 tissue abscess)” should replace “Out of which, S. aureus was isolated from 76 (20.9%) samples”.

The author has also proposed a revised title for the paper: “Antibiotic resistance and biofilm production among the strains of Staphylococcus aureus isolated in a tertiary care hospital in Nepal” which has been included as the title of this erratum.
