↵a Antibiogram results represent resistance to the antibiotics ampicillin-sulbactam (AMS), cephalothin (Cft), oxacillin (Oxa), penicillin G (Pen), erythromycin (Ery), ciprofloxacin (Cip), clindamycin (Cld), tetracycline (Te), trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole (SXT), and vancomycin (V). (i), intermediate resistance.

↵b Results of the 1-mg methicillin disc assay. Numbers indicate inhibition halos in millimeters.

↵c Isolates were tested for their ability to grow in the presence of 500 μg of spectinomycin per ml. R, resistant (confluent growth); S, susceptible (no growth).

↵d Clonal types were defined on the basis of

*Cla*I-*mecA*polymorphs,*Cla*I-Tn*554*insertion patterns, and*Sma*I-PFGE profiles. NH, no homology with the Tn*554*probe.↵e NA, data not available.
