2014 - Enterobactales with acquired carbapenemases


Hospital and community laboratories are requested to refer all isolates of possible carbapenemase-producing organisms to ESR for confirmation and further characterisation. This includes all carbapenemase-producing Enterobacterales (CPE), carbapenemase-producing Pseudomonas aeruginosa and carbapenem-resistant Acinetobacter. This first report covers the 6-year period 2009 (when the first CPE was identified in New Zealand) to 2014. Annual CPE surveillance reports are available for 2015 to 2021.
