Primary Outcome Measures:
  • 1. The acquisition rate of ESBL producing E. coli or K. Pneumoniae at the end of phase I (pre-intervention) and phase II (last 3 months of intervention phase) [ Time Frame: 9 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • The infection rate due to ESBL producing E. coli or K. pnumoniae at the end of phase I (pre-intervention) and phase II (last 3 months of intervention phase) [ Time Frame: 9 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

No Intervention: 1
baseline, collecting rectal swab samples
Active Comparator: 2
use pipercill/tazobact to replace 3rd generation cephalosporin and collect rectal swab
