A infección por esta bacteria pode tamén producirse en pacientes de [[diálise]] ou naqueles nos que o dispositivo plástico implantado estivese contaminado coa bacteria.
Infection can also occur in dialysis patients or anyone with an implanted plastic device that may have been contaminated.
Outra doenza que pode causar é a [[endocardite]], xeralmente en pacientes con válvulas cardíacas defectuosas. Nalgúns casos pode producirse [[sepse]] en pacientes hospiotalizados.
Another disease it causes is endocarditis. This occurs most often in patients with defective heart valves. In some other cases, sepsis can occur in hospital patients. {{citation needed|date=November 2013}}
 
Os antibióticos son pouco efectivos para eliminar as biopelículas. O tratamento máis común para estas infeccións é retirar ou substituír o implante infectado, aínda que o mellor é a prevención.
Antibiotics are largely ineffective in clearing biofilms. The most common treatment for these infections is to remove or replace the infected implant, though in all cases, prevention is ideal. The drug of choice is often [[vancomycin]], to which [[rifampin]] or [[aminoglycoside]] can be added.{{Citation needed|date=July 2011}} Hand washing has been shown to reduce the spread of infection.
