Serratia marcescens outbreak in a neonatal intensive care unit and the potential of whole-genome sequencing Vrije Universiteit Brussel
BACKGROUND: Serratia marcescens is notorious for its increasing antimicrobial resistance and potential to cause outbreaks in neonatal intensive care units (NICU). A promising tool in outbreak investigation is whole-genome sequencing (WGS).
OBJECTIVES: To describe a S. marcescens outbreak (2018-2019) on a NICU and discuss which infection control measures contributed to the containment, addressing the potential of WGS.
