Abstract

A total of 114 sp. isolates were collected from patients in the emergency departments (EDs) of two Korean hospitals. Most isolates belonged to the complex (105 isolates, 92.1 %). Imipenem resistance was found in 39 isolates (34.2 %) of the sp. isolates, and 6 colistin-resistant isolates were also identified. Species distribution and antimicrobial-resistance rates were different between the two hospitals. In addition, two main clones were identified in the imipenem-resistant isolates from hospital B, but very diverse and novel genotypes were found in those from hospital A. Many sp. isolates, including the imipenem-resistant , are considered to be associated with the community. The evidence of high antimicrobial resistance and different features in these sp. isolates between the two EDs suggests the need for continuous testing to monitor changes in epidemiology.
