BACKGROUND The hospital environment contributes to the spread of extended-spectrum β-lactamase (ESBL)-producing Enterobacteriaceae (ESBL-PE) during outbreaks. We aimed to assess the rate of environmental contamination in rooms occupied by ESBL carriers or infected children and to identify risk factors associated with contamination.
