Gram Negative Infections

Gram-negative bacteria are a specific type of bacteria with unique characteristics. Like most bacteria, they can cause infections throughout the body. Common infection sites include the lungs, urinary tract, bloodstream, nervous system, and soft tissues. Hospitalization is the most common risk factor for gram-negative bacterial infections. The longer the stay in the hospital, the higher the risk of infection. Bacterial infections may first be treated with antibiotics that are effective against a wide range of infections. The specific type of antibiotic may be changed if the infection is not responding to the first antibiotic.

Urinary Tract Infections

Urinary tract infections (UTIs) are very common. They can be painful and uncomfortable, but they usually pass within a few days or can be easily treated with a course of antibiotics. UTIs are more common in women than in men. It’s estimated half of all women in the UK will have a UTI at least once in their life with typical symptoms of bladder pain and a burning sensation when passing urine.
