In the Original Investigation by Ramirez and Bordon titled "Early Switch From Intravenous to Oral Antibiotics in Hospitalized Patients With Bacteremic Community-Acquired Streptococcus pneumoniae Pneumonia," published in the March 26 issue of the ARCHIVES (2001;161:848-850), an error occurred in the "Objective" statement of the abstract on page 848. This sentence should have read as follows: "To determine whether the switch from intravenous to oral therapy in such patients, once the patient reaches clinical stability, is associated with poor clinical outcome." The journal regrets the error.
