bacteremia in a long-term care facility. spectrum and hundred episodes of bacteremia were studied in a primarily geriatric population. gram-positive bacteremia accounted for 24% of all bacteremia (50% mortality rate), while gram-negative bacteremia accounted for 67% of bacteremia (25% mortality); 9% of all bacteremias were polymicrobial in nature (67% mortality). overall mortality was 35%. the urinary tract was the most frequently identified tissue source (56%) followed by skin and subcutaneous tissue (14%) and respiratory tract (10%). escheric ...19846380441

epidemiology of antimicrobial resistance among gram-negative organisms recovered from patients in a multistate network of long-term care facilities.we identified 1,805 gram-negative organisms in cultures of urine samples obtained over a 10-month period from residents of 63 long-term care facilities. the prevalence of fluoroquinolone resistance in escherichia coli was 51% (446 of 874 isolates), whereas the prevalences of ceftazidime and imipenem resistance in klebsiella species were 26% and 6% (84 and 19 of 323 isolates), respectively. the prevalence of resistance varied significantly by facility type, size, and geographic location.200919566445
