Acinetobacter spp

Bacteriology A widely distributed bacterium found in moist hospital environments, which may establish itself in the respiratory flora and on the skin of Pts with prolonged hospitalization, often via contaminated medical instruments–eg, catheters and IV lines which introduce Acinetobacter to normally sterile sites; infections are generally nosocomial, occur in warmer seasons and involve the GU tracts and respiratory tract, wounds, and soft tissues
