Enterobacter cloacae complex outbreak in a neonatal intensive care unit: multifaceted investigations and preventive measures are needed

Abstract

We report the investigation to control an Enterobacter cloacae complex outbreak in a neonatal intensive care unit from November 2020 to February 2021. Pulsed-field gel electrophoresis showed that five of eight cases were infected with a clonal strain. Breast pumps, shared among mothers in the unit, could have contributed to the sprea d of the clonal spread.
