Abstract

Clin Microbiol Infect 2012; 18: 862-869 Staphylococcus aureus bacteraemia (SAB) is a leading cause of mortality and morbidity in both nosocomial and community settings. The objective of the study is to explore epidemiological characteristics and predisposing risk factors associated with healthcare-associated (HCA) and community-acquired (CA) SAB, and to evaluate any differences in mortality and efficacy of initial antimicrobial therapy on treatment outcome. We conducted a two-part analysis. First, a triple case-control study in which groups of HCA SAB with onset ≥48h after hospital admission (HCA≥48h), HCA SAB with onset
