Week 29 Posted on July 31, 2023 by Riya Ghandi Please answer the following questions: Step 1 of 2 50% Please select the correct statement(s)(Required) Enterococcus gallinarum is mainly associated with urinary tract infections in hospitalized patients. Automated identification systems can accurately differentiate between Enterococcus gallinarum and Enterococcus faecium, however, Matrix-assisted laser desorption ionization time-of-flight mass spectrometry (MALDI-TOF MS) is not reliable as identification method for Enterococcus species. Enterococcus gallinarum and Enterococcus casseliflavus are prone to cause infection in patients with concurrent hepatobiliary or oncohematological disorders. Please select the correct statement(s)(Required) It is not necessary to test susceptibility to vancomycin for Enterococcus casseliflavus or Enterococcus gallinarum. Enterococcus gallinarum and Enterococcus casseliflavus need to be distinguished from vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus faecium and Enterococcus faecalis It is acceptable to report Enterococcus gallinarum as susceptible to vancomycin as these organisms have very low level of resistance to this agent. Patients colonized or infected with Enterococcus gallinarum (and Enterococcus caseliflavus) do not require the same isolation precautions as true vancomycin-resistant enterococci.
