• There is debate about the importance of one positive blood culture for enterococci.
• Multiple positive blood cultures was an independent predictor of inpatient mortality.
• Bacteremia >6.7 days resulted in approximately 20% increased mortality.
Enterococci represent one of the most common causative pathogens of bloodstream infections (BSIs). There is debate in the literature regarding the clinical importance of single versus multiple positive blood cultures for Enterococci. This single-center retrospective study found that patients with multiple positive blood cultures experienced increased inpatient mortality and a shorter median survival. Additionally, BSIs >6.7 days resulted in approximately 20% increased mortality. These results are preliminary and require further exploration.
