About Klebsiella

According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Klebsiella is a type of “bacteria that can cause different types of healthcare-associated infections, including pneumonia, bloodstream infections, wound or surgical site infections, and meningitis.” Although Klebsiella can be found in the intestines of healthy individuals, it can cause infections in the frail or in individuals who are exposed to the bacteria as the result of certain medical procedures or products.
