Avoid Empiric Fluconazole for Candida auris
Your hospital will start preparing for Candida auris...a multidrug-resistant yeast that's reached more than 12 states across the U.S.
C. auris has high mortality...spreads easily among patients...contaminates surfaces...and is tough to eliminate.
Plus few labs are able to identify C. auris yet. It can mistakenly be reported as another yeast...especially Candida haemulonii.
