Özet

Background: Serratia marcescens is a well-known but relatively uncommon cause of nosocomial infections, particularly in neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) patients. We investigated an outbreak of S marcescens in the NICU at the Farabi Hospital of Karadeniz Technical University in Trabzon, Turkey.
