Abstract

Cardiology Rehabilitation wards specialize in the rehabilitation of patients who are suffering from cardiac surgery or an acute heart attack. Hospital Infections are the most frequent and severe complication of healthcare. Nevertheless, during the last two decades, coagulasenegative staphylococci (CoNS) have indicated as the primary cause of infections and septicemia in cardiology care units. Among the CoNS, the role played by Staphylococcus capitis in the field of infectious processes has been considered. We present our experience of S. capitis isolations from a patient admitted with cardiovascular disease with lower limbal diabetic ulcers.
