Abstract

A case–case–control investigation (216 patients) examined the risk factors and outcomes of carbapenem-resistant Enterobacter (CR-En) acquisition. Recent exposure to fluoroquinolones, intensive care unit (ICU) stay, and rapidly fatal McCabe condition were independent predictors for acquisition. Acquiring CR-En was independently associated with discharge to a long-term care facility after being admitted from home.
