On 31 May 2011, after notification of Klebsiella pneumoniae (KP)(OXA-48;CTX-M-15) in two patients, nosocomial transmission was suspected in a Dutch hospital. Hospital-wide infection control measures and an outbreak investigation were initiated. A total of 72,147 patients were categorised into groups based on risk of OXA-48 colonisation or infection, and 7,527 were screened for Enterobacteriaceae(OXA-48) by polymerase chain reaction (PCR). Stored KP isolates (n=408) were retrospectively tested… CONTINUE READING
