care epidemiology in the future," said David Henderson, M.D., NIH Clinical Center deputy director for clinical care and associate director for quality assurance and hospital epidemiology. His team is preparing a paper that will outline the use of genome sequencing within the methodology of infection control for similar outbreaks. "Now that we know what genome sequencing can do," he said, "I anticipate this methodology will be rapidly adopted by the hospital epidemiology community."

Roughly 1.7 million hospital-associated infections occur annually in the United States, contributing to 99,000 deaths, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Multi-drug resistant K. pneumoniae is among the more dreaded infections because few effective treatments exist and the mortality rate can be has high as 50 percent of those infected. Infection-control specialists have been detecting drug-resistant K. pneumoniae at a growing rate in health facilities. Multi-drug resistant K. pneumoniae is most dangerous for patients with immune systems weakened by medical procedures or such conditions as advanced age and illness.
