•wait klebsiella is the name of a bacteria?•••••Yes Klebsiella (of which K. pneumoniae is the most common species) is a encapsulated gram-negative rod responsible for hospital-acquired bronchopneumonia in the immunocompromised and alcoholics, nosocomially acquired bacteremia, UTI & pyelonephritis, and rarer conditions such as peritonitis, and chronic otitis media....etc.
