β-Lactamases produced by urine isolates from patients in long-term care facilities (LTCFs), outpatient, clinics, and one hospital in a U.S. community were characterized. A total of 1.3% of all Escherichia coli and Klebsiella pneumoniae isolates collected from patients in 30 LTCFs and various outpatient clinics produced extended-spectrum β-lactamases (ESBLs) and/or imported AmpC β-lactamases.
