A 78-year-old woman was admitted for an aortobifemoral bypass and a bilateral aortorenal bypass. Her hospital course was complicated by postoperative respiratory failure (requiring extended ventilator support), hospital-acquired pneumonia, and acute respiratory distress syndrome. She received multiple medications during her hospital course, including vancomycin and combination piperacillin sodium, and tazobactam sodium, on postoperative day (POD) 14. On POD 28, she developed bullous eruption, and the dermatology department was consulted.
