UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital Antimicrobial Susceptibility: Enterococcal Bloodstream Isolates Susceptibilities

Of 31 enterococcal bacteremias in 2015-2017, 2 were vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus faecium (VRE), 5 were Enterococcus species considered functionally resistant to vancomycin, but susceptible to ampicillin, e.g. Enterococcus avium, Enterococcus casseliflavus, Enterococcus gallinarum
