Pseudomonas aeruginosa is a bacterium often causing hospital-acquired infections and being resistant against many antibiotics.
These bacteria live in humid environments and are an important hospital pathogen
and food contaminant. In hospitals they cause, for example, wound infections, infections of the urinary tract, pulmonary infections and sepsis
. People with a weakened immune system
are especially susceptible. Most strains of Pseudomonas aeruginosa
have natural resistances against many antibiotics.
