Episodes of gram-negative bacteriemia have been traced to bacterial contamination of water and/or dialysate errors in dialyzer reprocessing and improper setup procedures In this paper we describe and outbreak of gram-negative bacteremia firstly E cloacae in an outpatients haemodialysis unit in the patients with long-term tunnelled haemodialysis catheters An Outbreak of Bacteremia and Pyrogenic Reactions in a Dialysis Unit — Pennsylvania On March 18 1978 result in the production of massive levels of gram-negative bacteria in dialysis ftuid— levels which have been associated with outbreaks of

Outbreak of Ralstonia pickettii Bacteremia in a Neonatal

Background: Ralstonia pickettii is a Gram-negative bacillus commonly found in soil and moist environments however R pickettii is rarely isolated from clinical specimens In August 2001 a cluster of R pickettii bacteremia occurred among neonatal intensive

However the accuracy of these systems is often poor and is not known for some species of bacteria particularly for non-glucose-fermenting gram-negative bacilli () In the present study we first document an outbreak of bacteremia caused by P fluorescens

2020/6/23The outbreak was suspected in March 2019 and an investigation was triggered when four subsequent cases of bacteremia caused by B cepacia occurred over a period of 1 month This prompted a detailed microbiological investigation and hospital infection surveillance activities

Quinolone-resistant gram-negative and gram-positive bacteria are increasing in frequency because of the widespread use of these agents in empirical treatment Among the resistant gram-positive organisms methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus penicillin-resistant pneumococci and vancomycin-resistant enterococci are the most feared pathogens

2013/4/20Carbapenem-resistant (CR) Gram-negative pathogens have increased substantially This study was performed to identify the risk factors for development of CR Gram-negative bacteremia (GNB) in intensive care unit (ICU) patients Prospective study risk factors for

Gram Positive vs Gram Negative

Difference in structure of Gram positive vs Gram negative bacteria The diagram below illustrates the differences in the structure of Gram positive and Gram negative bacteria The two key features that lead to the differing visualization properties of Gram positive and Gram negative species are the thickness of the peptidoglycan layer and presence or absence of the outer lipid membrane

Leuconostoc lactis is a glycopeptide-resistant gram-positive facultative anaerobic coccus isolated from dairy products whereas Staphylococcus nepalensis is coagu-lase-negative coccus that has not been identified as hu-L lactis and S nepalensis bacteremia

A culture of hand-expressed milk was negative for gram-negative rods The breast-pump tubing and safety trap were grossly contaminated with K pneumoniae Institution of proper sterilization of the pump equipment controlled the outbreak

Background and Objectives: In October 2008 an investigation was conducted into a cluster of gram-negative bloodstream infections after invasive pain management procedures at an outpatient facility to identify additional cases and determine the source of illness Methods: We conducted a retrospective cohort study to determine exposures associated with illness Eligible patients had an invasive

However this is the first time that an outbreak of sepsis due to ESBL positive gram negative bacteria specifically K pneumoniae is reported from this NCU in Haiti Similar outbreaks have also been reported in the region 8 9 and neonatal intensive care units in other lower resources settings 4 10 11 12

An outbreak of chryseobacterium indologenes bacteremia: Pseudobacteremia

The number of aerobic gram-positive cocci was 2169 (50 2%) with most of them was Staphylococcus epidermidis (n Z 1395) followed by Staphylo-coccus aureus (n Z 388) and Enterococcus (n Z 226) The number of aerobic gram-negative bacilli was 1705 (39 5
