Providencia

 [prov″ĭ-den´shah]
a genus of gram-negative, facultatively anaerobic, motile, rod-shaped bacteria, occurring in normal urine and feces. Organisms are potential pathogens associated with urinary tract and secondary tissue infections. P. stuar´tii causes nosocomial infections and is a major agent in burn infections.

Providencia

(prov'i-den'sē-ă),
A genus of motile, peritrichous, non-spore-forming, aerobic or facultatively anaerobic bacteria (family Enterobacteriaceae) containing gram-negative rods. These organisms do not hydrolyze urea nor produce hydrogen sulfide; they produce indole and grow on Simmons citrate medium. They do not decarboxylate lysine, arginine, or ornithine. These organisms occur in specimens from extraintestinal sources, particularly urinary tract infections; they have also been isolated from small outbreaks and sporadic cases of diarrheal disease. The type species is Providencia alcalifaciens.
