Follow Contact Precautions for Patients With Candida auris

Your hospital will prepare for Candida auris...an invasive multidrug-resistant yeast that's reached over 12 states across the U.S.

What's scary is that C. auris has high mortality...spreads easily among patients...contaminates surfaces...and is tough to eliminate.

Expect to dispense an "echinocandin" antifungal...anidulafungin, caspofungin, or micafungin...when C. auris is suspected or confirmed. Fluconazole won't be ordered...it's unlikely to work for C. auris.
