A large outbreak of infection and colonization with multiple genera of gram‐negative bacilli carrying the metallo‐β‐lactamase gene blaIMP‐4 occurred in a 36‐bed intensive care unit at a tertiary hospital in Australia. The organisms emerged rapidly, caused severe infections, and contributed to mortality. Controlling the spread of these organisms remains a challenge for all staff involved.
