Although segregation of colonised patients from non-colonised patients to prevent cross-infection has been recommended, there is little evidence that such cross-infection is widespread. We observed that a high proportion of children attending our CF clinic were colonised with P aeruginosa that was resistant to ceftazidime and other beta… CONTINUE READING
