Candida auris

 

C. auris is an emerging yeast that is multidrug resistant and has a propensity to spread in healthcare settings. Outbreaks have occurred in several states, primarily in the eastern half of the country. One case as well as multiple patients who are colonized with C. auris have been identified at multiple skilled nursing facilities in Orange County. Early detection of C. auris and rigorous adherence to infection control measures is essential for containing its spread in healthcare facilities.
