Ethics approval and consent to participate
: This research was performed under the principles of the Helsinki Declaration. For the purposes of this study, all data were collected as part of the routine diagnostic services from each of the collaborating organisations and no human clinical data were accessed or linked with the microbiological data. Consequently, the IRB granted a waiver of ethical approval because <i>K. pneumoniae</i> isolates from blood cultures derived from hospital- and/or community-associated BSI following routine diagnostic protocols in each hospital laboratory (identified using biochemical testing, typically API-20E, bioMerieux, or by MALDI-TOF bacterial identification systems) were included in the study.
