Abstract

ABSTRACT: This case report describes eradication of carbapenem-resistant Klebsiella pneumoniae from an ischial pressure injury in a patient who underwent a 3-week course of nontoxic three-part combination local wound therapy. With this therapy, providers prevented systemic spread of this multidrug-resistant pathogen and avoided the nephrotoxicity associated with conventional triple antibiotic therapy.
