Gram-negative bacteremia (GN-BSI) can cause significant morbidity and mortality, but the benefit of ID consultation (IDC) is not well defined. A 24-site observational cohort study of unique hospitalized patients with 4,861 GN-BSI episodes demonstrated a 40% decreased risk of 30-day mortality in patients with IDC compared to those without IDC.
