Abstract/OtherAbstract:
An investigation, including environmental sampling, was undertaken after four leukaemic patients on the same hospital ward developed serious infections with Klebsiella aerogenes, capsular type K14. The source of this organism, common to all four patients, was found to be a food blender used for preparing milk-based drinks on the ward.
