May consider adding Rifampin for infections in prosthetic material
Staphylococcus epidermidis is a coagulase-negative species (CoNS) of Staphylococcus.
It is part of the normal human flora, typically the skin flora, and less commonly the mucosal flora.
S. epidermidis is not usually pathogenic, but patients with compromised immune systems and those with catheters and surgical implants are at risk of developing infection.
