Hello. My name is K. oxytoca.
I'm Gram negative, in the Enterobacteriaceae family.
I'm part of the Klebsiellae tribe.
My cousin K. ozaenae and I love hospitals.
We cause urinary tract infections, respiratory tract infections and lots of surgical wound infections.
We are very resistant to many antibiotics because we hang around hospitals so much.
